DELAWARE RIVER REGION TRAIL

Upper Delaware Take a Hike! Trail

Trailhead GPS: Coordinates N41.42708 W74.75531

Getting There: The parking area is located on Route 97 at the intersection with CR-31 (Upper Mongaup Road). The parking area is just northeast of this intersection near a bridge over the Mongaup River.

Difficulty: This hike is rated EASY because it is relatively flat and short. There may be wet or muddy areas along the way. Be careful if you chose to walk down to the stream bed as it the “path” is steep and it is easy to slip.

Trail Surface. The trail surface is free of large stones and tree trunks consisting mostly of small stones and dirt. The trail is may be wet and muddy.

Hike Description: The trail leaves the right side of the parking area as a flat gravel path paralleling the river. The trail is easy to walk and easy to follow. In a few places it splits to go around some bushes and then unites just after. You may want to drop down to the water’s edge to get a view of the river. The trail remains easy to follow and relatively flat and well maintained for the entire length. Continue to the end of the trail where you will find an old cemetery to the right of the trail. The engraving on the stones is weathered and hard to read but one date is “1882”. Turn around to walk back to your car the way you came.
