ABOUT THE DELAWARE WATER GAP
According to PoconoMountains.com, “The Delaware Water Gap, which straddles the Delaware River along the Pennsylvania-New Jersey state line, is an historic destination that offers some of the Poconos’ best hiking, cycling, boating, and camping. With its concentration of waterfalls and scenic outlooks, this 70,000-acre protected area draws visitors from across the East Coast to enjoy its natural beauty.
Less than two hours from both New York City and Philadelphia, it has long been an outdoor retreat, especially in the summer. The Appalachian Trail runs through the preserve, and countless paddlers take advantage of this breathtaking section of the Delaware River.”
