Four-map set, map #s 120, 121, 122 & 123 (formerly titled just Kittatinny Trails)
The Delaware Water Gap & Kittatinny Trails Map is a four-map set featuring trails along the Kittatinny Ridge and adjacent Delaware River through New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York. The maps are printed in vibrant color on waterproof and tear-resistant Tyvek, and are a must-have for exploring the vast parklands along the Kittatinny Ridge and adjacent section of the Delaware River.
This 2021 revision, in addition to the title change, includes new and improved elevation contour lines, which make cliffs and steep trail areas easier to identify, as well as revised streams to more accurately show stream crossings. The system of nearly 40 miles of multi-use trails at Port Jervis Watershed Park has been added, and other new trails include the Sawkill Trail that connects Milford to the Cliff Park trail system and newly-opened sections of trail along Hornbecks Creek in Pennsylvania. Trail name and blaze color updates include trails in Worthington State Forest, trails around Blue Mountain Lake/Hemlock Pond/Crater Lake in Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, and sections of the Lusscroft Farm area of High Point State Park. Improvements have been made to the route and access points for the 32-mile-long McDade Trail in Pennsylvania. Newly-protected lands have been added to the maps, including recent acquisitions by the Ridge and Valley Conservancy and The Land Conservancy of New Jersey. Several birding hotspots have been added with assistance from the Saw Mill River Audubon to highlight areas of special interest for birding. Additional adjustments throughout the maps, including additional viewpoint stars, make this 8th edition of Delaware Water Gap & Kittatinny Trails our most accurate map yet of these parklands.
