Convergence of East and West Branches


blank dot

The east and west branches of the Delaware River converge near Hancock, NY, a town that is known as ’The Gateway To The Delaware River’ . The east branch originates from Grand Gorge in the Catskill Mountains, while the west branch starts from Mount Jefferson in the same region . The two branches flow through different valleys and towns, until they meet at the base of Point Mountain, forming the headwaters of the Delaware River. The Delaware River then flows through four states and eventually reaches the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

The convergence of the east and west branches of the Delaware River is a scenic and historic spot, where anglers can enjoy fishing for trout and other species. It is also part of the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River, a national park unit that protects the natural and cultural resources of the river corridor.
