Description

Journey along the Van Campens Glen Trail for a delightful Delaware Water Gap experience.

Starting at the Pioneer Trail parking area , follow the yellow-blazed trail northeast along Van Campen Brook. Take your time as your meander through the lush hemlock glade surrounding Van Campen Brook, keeping an eye peeled for fly-fisherman trying their luck at landing the beautiful endemic fish that frequent this area.

The bridge that used to cross the creek to access the Watergate Parking area was wiped out at some point over the past few years. The parks department has since put an orange safety fence in that location and huge thorn bushes have grown in. Once you reach this point, you'll need to either retrace your steps back to the south parking lot or cross a bridge about a 1/4 mile back which leads to Old Mine Road, if you want to continue north.
