Mcdade TrailBike the McDade Trail in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area


Hike up to Sunfish Pond from Worthington State Forest

Hike through some of the prettiest forests in New Jersey to a glacial lake 1,000 feet above the surrounding area.

Trail surface: The Gap is notorious for rocks and will give feet and joints a good pounding. It can be hiked in sneakers… but we wouldn’t recommend it. The Appalachian Trail is rockier than the Dunnfield Creek Trail, in our opinion.

Take a stroll among 4 billion-year-old stones at nearby Columcille Megalith Park and Celtic Art Center 

Columcille draws its inspiration from Iona– a tiny island of four-billion-year-old stone off Scotland’s West Coast. The island has been a source of spiritual guidance and awakening for centuries. Written accounts of Iona as a place of pilgrimage date back to the seventh century and oral histories and legends preserve traditions that stretch back to the earliest times.
