The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area is a protected park covering both sides of the Delaware River Between Milford, PA to the North and Stroudsburg, PA and the Gap itself at the Southerly end. The NPS describes it.. “For 40 miles the Middle Delaware River passes between low forested mountains with barely a house in sight. Then the river cuts through the mountain ridge to form the famed “Water Gap.” Exiting the park, the river will run 200 miles more to Delaware Bay at Wilmington, Delaware, and then to the Atlantic Ocean.”

This trip is an ACA Paddle America Event.. open to all members and guests who preregister. Format is for three days to travel and explore the area at a leisurely pace. Plans are tentative and will be adjusted on a daily basis according to weather, whim and group choice. The goal is pure enjoyment. No one, ever, will be challenged beyond their comfort level. Preliminary plans include;
