The Mt. Tammany Red Dot Trail which leads up to a beautiful vantage point with spectacular views of the Delaware Water Gap is not a leisurely stroll. The terrain is rated as "Moderate" and it is rugged and rocky with steep ascents and descents. I...More

I hiked up Mt Tammany on 8/26/17. If you are fit person you will have no problems. I did see quite a few kids (8-15 yrs old) at the top so I guess if you take enough breaks you will be fine. Wear good hiking...More
