Hiking at Ten Mile River

Special thanks to Sean Johnson who created these Hiking Guides and to David Malatzky and the TMR Musuem.

The TMR Museum also offers georeferenced maps of T.M.R. for use on gps-enabled cell phones and tablets through the Avenza Maps Store: 

https://www.avenzamaps.com/vendor/969/ten-mile-river-scout-museum/

These require installation of the free Avenza Maps (former PDF Map) app on your gps-enabled cell phone/tablet.  The app shows you your location anywhere on T.M.R. property within 20 ft.

There are also two amazing paid verisons of the map in the Avenza Maps Store:

  • 2016 Ten Mile River Scout Camps Trail Map
  • 1962 Ten Mile River Scout Camps Historical Map

File Name Description
24in x 27in TMR Trails Map Shade-Relief.pdf This is the complete shade-relief version of the 24 in. x 27 in. T.M.R. Trails Map. Download
24in x 27in TMR Trails Map.pdf The 24 in. x 27 in. T.M.R. Trails Map separated into three letter-sized sections (in one PDF). Unlike the full-sized version, this can be printed on a typical color printer, then taped together to form a complete T.M.R. map. Download
A Visit to Trout Pond - Fairly Easy - 5.23 Miles This hike is a variation of the “Crystal Lake Loop” hike, in that it includes a visit to Trout Pond. This is a great option for adult leaders wishing to teach and/or supervise the use of map and compass for aspiring 2nd Class scouts, as it will meet that rank’s requirement 3(b) -the five mile hike. Download
Black Ash Swamp Loop - Easy - 2.91 Miles This is a great introductory day hike at Ten Mile River. The hike begins on the main TMR Trail (marked with red markers) at the Ten Mile River Scout Museum in Headquarters and travels around the east side of Turnpike Pond. Download
Crystal Lake Loop - Fairly Easy - 3.97 Miles This is a popular hike not only because of its proximity to Ten Mile River’s largest summer camp at Camp Keowa but also because of its spectacular scenery. Download
Delaware Hike Guide - Moderate - 6.42 Miles It is a spectacular 6.4 mile hike starting near Ten Mile River Access, and follows Tusten Road and the Conklin Lookout Trail to the T.M.R. boundary and back again. Lots of great views of the Delaware River! Download
Hike to Indian Cliffs - Fairly Easy - 3.37 Miles The hike to Indian Cliffs from the Camp Kunatah gate is perhaps one of the most (if not the most) popular segments of the entire TMR Trail. Rather than the usual “out and back” route, I have added an additional portion that will walk the length of Rock Lake, creating a loop. Download
