Area Description: Nestled in the Pocono Mountains, just 80 miles west of New York City and 100 miles north of Philadelphia, the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area attracts over 5-million visitors each year. Visitors marvel at the rocky crags, hemlock forests, tumbling waterfalls, and meandering river. Scenic drives take visitors through rural settings along historic roads and past some of the oldest houses in the Delaware River valley. The spectacular mountain and valley scenery are ideal backdrops for a variety of recreational activities that include hiking, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, biking, fishing, and hunting. The 70,000-acre park also includes the Middle Delaware National Scenic and Recreation Area and 26 miles of the Appalachian National Scenic Trail.
