NPS Features the Tusten Mountain Trail


The Tusten Mountain Trail is featured as part of the National Park Service “Take a Hike” program.  Hikers will find the trail off Route 97, turning on Crawford Road and parking at the Ten Mile River Access.  The route follows Ten Mile River Road on foot, crossing over the historic stone
arch bridge to the trail head on your right-hand side.

The Tusten Mountain Trail (Yellow Dot Trail) is the only trail on the Tehn Mile River Scout Camp property that is open to the public.  The Tusten Mountain Trail is a moderately difficult three-mile loop trail through a wide variety of hardwood trees, and historic remains of the Tusten Settlement with a view of the Upper Delaware River Valley from the summit.

The foliage on this hike can be especially appreciated from late September through the end of October. This trail is open during deer hunting season in late November and early December so caution during this time is advised and wearing bright visible clothing is suggested. Dogs are also welcome on this trail but must be kept on a leash.
