GO Outdoors: Mount Tammany Hike with Rutgers University from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Where: Mount Tammany

Mount Tammany in the Delaware Water Gap is by far one of our long-time staff favorite hikes.  This is a shorter hike with a good elevation gain and sweeping views of the mountains of Pennsylvania as well as the river.  The going is rocky, but the views and the waterfalls keep us coming back over and over again.
