It is hard to believe fall is already around the corner. But, we are always looking ahead and this is the best way to wrap up your summer hiking season, basking in the amazing fall foliage of the Water Gap. The plan is to take three peaks in one day. We will first head up Mt. Tammany. This is a straight up assault on the highest peak in the water gap. We should summit in only about 1 hour with 1,200 ft in elevation change.
Next, we will wind up to Sunfish Pond atop Mt. Mohican. Includes 1150 ft elevation change. You must be able to hike uphill for 1.5-2 hours with reasonable breaks. The hike will include the entire Sunfish Pond loop and several water crossings.
If you have anything left in your tank, we will head across the valley to Mt. Minsi to take in the views of the foliage on the Mountains we just summited.
You must be fit to do this hike. But, you do not have to climb all three mountains to come. But, you do have to be there for the first hike. After each peak, there will be an opportunity to head home.
Because of the early sunset, we must leave on time to get all three peaks in. Pack a lunch and bring a flashlight in case the sun starts going down on our third decent.
Special incentive - If you climb two peaks, Brett will be buying some of the best pumpkin pie on earth as a reward!
If you climb all three peaks, you will earn an Official TerraMar Adventures Knit Cap to keep you warm this winter.
