The Delaware Water Gap is such a beautiful place in the fall with all the colorful foliage and the mountains and river in the background. It is such a nice place to relax and drive through. It is a nice place to drive through for the afternoon and relax. It is the best way see nature at its finest.

Great place for a nice hike, the trails are well groomed and marked. The hike can be as strenuous as you want it to be. If your visiting the Poconos or Northern NJ this hike us a must.

This is a delightful drive during the spring, summer, and fall (especially if you catch the leaves changing). You need to be aware that part of the River Road may be closed for repairs which involve a detour. There appear to be numerous bike/hike paths along the river as well as some commercial places that are great (such as Bushkill... More

Great area for scenic views, sightseeing, antiquing, and food. Had a very great time on what was a pretty bad day weather wise. Can't wait to go back in the spring.

This park is really an amazing engineering feat. Cut through the mountains it offers visitors and passing cars an exciting look at history. The changing foliage at this time of the year is really amazing. Rove rafting, camping, picnics and other activities are great fir active families as well

I have passed by countless times and always been tempted to do it. I picked a nice day with dry fall weather, but not too hot, and made sure to wear solid shoes and have some water. I had been advised not to leave valuables in the car at the parking lot. The trail is well marked: red dots on... More

As other contributors have noted, you could spend many days having fun outdoors. However, here's some info if you are just passing through. 1) There is a nice visitor center in the town of Delaware Water Gap, worth a 15 minute stop. 2) While the massive rock outcropping at the Point of the Gap is impressive, the gap itself barely...
