A Moderately strenuous climb with views on Red Dot Mount Tammany Trail located in Worthington State Forest.
To reach the trailhead take I-80 west to the Delaware Water Gap, as you enter the gap, exit and follow signs for the rest area. Park at Dunnfield Creek Natural Area, part of Worthington State Forest. This is the lower of two parking lots. If you miss it, simply take the last exit in NJ and follow signs for the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area visitors Center. After passing the visitors center you will relocate the rest stop and trail head after making a left using the underpass to cross I-80. This parking lot contains the Appalachian Trail and Mount Tammany trailheads.
Begin your hike on the east side of the parking lot by following the red dot blazed Mount Tammany Trail. The trail begins climbing almost immediately along a rocky path. Soon you come upon the first overlook with exposed cliffs and views of the Delaware Water Gap and Mount Minsi on the PA side rising 1463 feet. Mount Tammany on the left rises 1527 feet. Both peaks derived their names from Indians that once lived in the area with Mt Tammany named after a Lenni-Lenape Indian chief called Tamenund. The scenic 1200-foot gorge Delaware Water Gap was craved by the Delaware River within the last 100 million years. Continue following the trail until you get within 70 feet of the cache site. Please replace the cache as found.After finding the cache you may return via the route from which you came from, or for those up to the hiking challenge may continue climbing the red dot trail to the summit of Mt. Tammany for more spectacular views. At the summit, the Blue Dot trail creates a nice loop hike descending and finally arriving at Dunnfield Creek and the Appalachian Trail returns you to the parking lot.
