“A road traversing the eastern edge of the Kittatinny Ridge though the forest.”— Charles Behnken
From the start, the trail heads northeast, paralleling the Appalachian Trail. As a reasonably level old road through the woods, it is a well defined path, but can be narrow at times.
About halfway along the trail, you'll see an open field which is the site of a Heliport used by the fire service. After about 3.0 miles, the road intersects with the Turquoise Trail which cuts through a valley and past Sunfish Pond to connect with the AT. Currently the trail is crossed with down logs at the intersection with the Turquoise Trail (though they may not remain), so be on the lookout for the Turquoise Trail intersection. The Mt. Tammany Fire Road continues to the Yards Creek Reservoir which is private property. If you continue past the Turquoise Trail, you'll have to turn around at the boundary and retrace your steps.
Note: Where the trail starts at the top of the ridge, the Blue Dot Trail turns south to the Mt. Tammany Overlook, a short distance away, with great views of the Delaware Water Gap.
