Trail shared by Hunter R

Captivating views of the Delaware River await anyone who clambers up Mt. Tammany's steep slopes.

Description

Starting at the Dunnfield Creek Parking Area, follow the red-blazed trail past the junction with the Red Dot Trail Parking Lot Connector and up a steady climb. Continue climbing the ridge, taking time to slow down and enjoy the beautiful hardwood forests around you while you catch your breath.

After a mile of strenuous climbing, the trail grade becomes gentler, allowing visitors to breathe easy for a short while before their breath is taken away by the jaw-dropping views available at the Overlook located on the summit of Mt. Tammany.

Sadly (or thankfully, depending on the visitor), the Red Dot Trail ends at this point. Visitors can return the way they came, or continue along the Blue Blaze Trail for a more pleasant descent along gentler grades.

Flora & Fauna

Mixed hardwood forests surround this trail, with white oak, red maple, and shagbark hickory in abundance.
