Hike Mount Minsi
May 11, 2019
Join the Morris Ski Club on a moderately challenging hike as we climb Mount Minsi in the Delaware Water Gap area. Mount Minsi is directly across from Mt Tammany but is an easier hike due to a more gradual climb. The distance is about 6 miles and will take about 4 hours. The climb will offer some great views of the Delaware River and have some minor rock scrambling. We will return via a fire rood and take a side trip to hidden waterfalls. We will finish the day by going to the unique Minnisink Hotel for food and drinks.
Meeting Location: Mount Minsi Parking Lot Delaware Gap Pa
Hike distance: About 6 miles
Time: About 4 hours
Important Notes for the hike:
- This is NOT a beginner’s hike. The trail up to Mount Minsi can be challenging. It is not as steep as Mount Tammany but is not a easy stroll either.
- Hiking boots are highly recommended for climbing Mount Minsi as these trails are very rocky and there are some water crossings. .
- Daypack to carry extra clothing, sufficient water and a lunch or snack.
- Bring bug spray and sun screen
- There are great photo opportunities of Mount Tammany and the Delaware River.
- There are no bathrooms at the trail head so if you think you need to use one stop at the Pennsylvania Welcome Center.
