Great glacial pond, lots of wildlife, well maintained trail system
This hike is a moderate climb to Sunfish Pond, following the Appalachian Trail heading north. The trail is well maintained and well used by dayhikers and overniters alike. The hike has a few strenuous climbs, but mostly evenly graded climbs with a few level areas in between. I followed the Dunnfield Hollow Trail down from Sunfish Pond to make it a loop. This trail does have some rather steep sections, and I probably wouldnt suggest it as an uphill route if I had a fully loaded pack.
The trail head starts at the Dunnfield parking area just off Rte. 80 in New Jersey. When driving on Rte. 80, on the New Jersey side of the Deleware River, you will see the Dunnfield Parking area. There are many signs for the Water Gap, on the highway as well. Park in this Are, or in the Overflow Lot ( a grassy area nearby) ANd follow signs to the trailhead of the AT.
