Rattlesnake Swamp Trail is a moderate family friendly hike in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area that features stunning views and wildlife. This hike is located in the middle section of the park and starts from the Mohican Outdoor Center. This trail makes a great loop when combined with a segment of the Appalachian Trail. Take a right when you reach the AT and enjoy amazing views along the way. Once hikers will reach intersection with the Rattlesnake Swamp Trail that leads back to the outdoor center. Make sure and should keep an eye peeled for ample wildlife, especially beaver near Catfish Pond. This trail is dog friendly, but your pup must be on leash. There are campgrounds nearby.
