The beauty of the Delaware Water Gap is the best part of this hike. If you are not mentally prepared for a literal rock-to-rock hike, best to stay home until you are. One of the more challenging parts of the A.T. in PA due to hours-long concentration needed on where to place each bootstep. The town of Delaware Water Gap is hospitable and charming, worth the trudge. Zen moment: going from near-wilderness to crossing the Delaware River bridge and feeling the concrete beneath your feet "bounce" 2-3 inches when semis go roaring across the span. Be sure to take enough water when you set out as it's in relatively short supply compared to other areas of the state.
