     The Gap, positioned between Mount Minsi and Mount Tammany, marks the southern end of the 40 mile long Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Here at The Gap, the Delaware River twists into a dramatic S curve through the Kittantinny Mountains.
     Once a prime resort area of the 19th century, the Delaware River park was established to preserve this unique valley in 1965. Taking in a narrow swath of land bordering each side of the river, the park incorporates both, New Jersey and Pennsylvania bottomlands. One of the cleanest and most scenic rivers in the northeast, visitors take advantage of this recreation area with canoeing, tubing, fishing, boating and swimming. The park takes in over 200 miles of scenic roads, leading to camping sites, wildlife viewing, overlooks, trails and the park's natural features.
