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.
Mt Tammany: It was a nice "Spring" day. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping and about 50 of us were running loop after loop of the Red Dot & Blue Dot trails as part of the Mt Tammany race. I accomplished my goal of 4 ascents, 14.6 miles and 4763' gain. The trails were a nice mixture of frozen dirt, mud, rock, snow and ice. It certainly made for an interesting race.
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.
