Mount Tammany is perhaps New Jersey's most iconic mountain. Mount Tammany makes up the North portion of the Delaware Water Gap, which serves as a gateway to and from New Jersey via Interstate 80.
Althought it is only New Jersey's fifth highest mountain, Mount Tammany requires the largest vertical gain of any mountain in our state. From the Dunnfield Creek trailhead to the Tammany summit is a 1200' climb.
There are many views of the Water Gap from the trails on Tammany. The photograph above was taken near the summit of Tammany, with a view of the Gap and Mount Minsi.
Red dot up - blue dot down.
Amazing hike! Not too challenging, fantastic views from the lookout near the summit. Climb down the lookout area to get a full glimpse of the Delaware winding its way at the base of Mount Minsi.
Dunnfield Creek was a beautiful creek and nice path on the way out.
Took red dot trail from parking area off I-80 to view point where blue dot trail meets red dot trail. Walked from blue dot trail to Mount Tammany fire road and spent some time exploring the fire road for the true high point. Satisfied that I had done this, took the fire road back to the blue dot then blue dot down to AT and ended in the other parking lot. Walked the connector path back to my car and headed home, making the obligatory hot dog johnnys stop for lunch.
