As I mentioned in a post earlier, hiking has been something my husband, and I have both gotten into recently. New Jersey isn’t the state you think of when thinking of great hikes but there are a lot of different fun and exciting trails we’ve taken.
I first got into hiking when I was completely injured from running. Hiking made me feel healthy and strong. Even though I’m healthy again, my husband and I are still enjoying the adventure of hiking.
Earlier in the week we drove up to the Delaware Water Gap in north west, New Jersey. It’s one of the furthest points from our house and took about 2 hours to drive. We wanted to hike to Sunfish Pond.
Sunfish Pond is a glacial lake formed from the last ice age. It took us about 4 hours for the entire hike.
This is always a welcoming sign:
After hiking about 3 miles, almost completely up, we made it to the top of the mountain. It was a gorgeous view over the Delaware Water Gap and we could see into Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
We continued along the trail to get to Sunfish pond. The pond was well worth the hike.
We spent a little while out there and headed back home. Since it has rained recently, there were a lot of small waterfalls and creeks. Last time we hiked, most of the falls were dry!
Questions for you:
Do you enjoy hiking?
Is it flat or are there mountains where you live?
