Dunnfield Creek, Sunfish Pond, Raccoon Ridge Hike
Loop hike through the Delaware Water Gap including Dunnfield Creek, Sunfish Pond, Raccoon Ridge, and the AT.
From the Dunnfield Creek parking lot we will hike the Dunnfield Hollow Trail to Sunfish Pond. This section includes multiple stream crossings that, depending on how fast the creek is running, may require getting your feet wet, so please plan accordingly. Trekking poles are strongly recommended. After a rest at a rock outcropping on the northeast side of Sunfish Pond we will continue on the Appalachian Trail to Raccoon Ridge for lunch. After lunch we will travel back down the Appalachian Trail to our cars. Sturdy hiking boots are recommnded. Bring at least 3 quarts of water and lunch plus snacks. Steady rain cancels.
Hike / bike / on-water distance: 15 miles
Hike rating: E+
Meeting place: Meet at the Dunnfield Creek Parking lot, which is the second exit in NJ off Route 80 East. Follow the ramp under the overpass, turn left and then right into the lot.
