This is an exciting hike with a wide variety of terrain. Beginning at the Copper mine trail head off old mine road, we ascend past two now defunct copper mines. We follow a stream/waterfall up a strenuous hill to Appalachian trail. From there, we will keep ascending past excellent views to a local high point, the Catfish Fire tower, where you can climb to the top and take pictures. (not for the faint of heart) After a small meal, we will had back through catfish swamp, past the AMC Mohican center and back to the car. After the hike we may attempt some food at the Sycamore Grill, American Fair and beer. 92 Main St Delaware Water Gap, PA 18327; or someplace closer to NYC There is a little bit of everything on this hike.
