Quote:I know the Delaware Water Gap is near by, but according to the website no dogs allowed on the beaches.
With 70,000 acres available at Delaware Water Gap NRA, the closure of the 2 beaches on the river has pretty much no impact on anyone's enjoyment of the area if they bring their dog.

In the town of Delaware Water Gap, on Rt 611 and just off Rt 80 one of the trailheads for the Appalachian Trail is found just up Mountain Rd (just turn up the road away from the river, and follow the white blazes up the road!). There is parking there, almost immediately you come to a small pond called Lake Lenape, and if you continue up the way you can go all the way up Mt Minsi on the Appalachian Trail or looping around on the fire road. Wonderful view from the top of the mountain of the gap down below. http://www.nps.gov/dewa/planyourvisit/upload/sb2Hikes.pdf

And there are tons and tons of other hiking trails in the park. All the walking trails (except at the high use areas like with the Visitor Centers) are open to leashed dogs. The McDade Trail, the continuation of the Appalachian Trail into NJ (parking on the NJ side of the gap off Rt 80). Scads of trails then as you go north on either side of the river. Worthington State Park is right there in NJ also

YES! Caroline and her Raspberry Ridge Farm are the ones in the book! Good for you for recognizing it.
