Overview

Let's enjoy an early summer hike in a beautiful forest setting that is home to more than the average amount of wildlife. We'll begin at 10:00am in the Dunnfield Creek Natural Area parking lot, just off I-80 in the Delaware Water Gap. (located in NJ, just east of the I-80 bridge crossing the Delaware River) Our 9-10 mile hike will begin by hiking up Dunnfield Hollow Trail, crossing Dunnfield Creek a number of times along the way. We then walk short sections of a Fire Road and the Turquoise Trail to our lunch break at the rocks on the north side of Sunfish Pond. After a pleasant picnic stop, we will move to the Appalachian Trail for our hike back to the trailhead. Don't forget water (2+ liters), lunch, and snacks. Rain gear is always advisable (just in case). Hiking boots or trail shoes are recommended. Walking stick or trekking poles will also be useful, especially during our stream crossings. Heavy steady rain, arrival of alien invasion force orbiting planet Earth, or Global Pandemic may cancel hike. If in doubt about weather or aliens, contact leader before 8:30am.
