Prior Trails of the Month

November 2021: Cliff Trail – Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area

The Cliff Trail is an exhilarating trek along the Mashipacong Cliffs that overlooks the Delaware River. This adventure is 2.8 miles one way. It offers an “onward and upward” start if you begin at the northern trailhead and will quickly have your heart pumping as you steadily climb to the beloved landmark known as the Milford Knob.



October 2021: Wallenpaupack Lake and Creek Trails

These two connected trails are ideal for all skill levels and offer beautiful views for all four seasons, whether you enjoy walking, hiking or snowshoeing. The Wallenpaupack Creek Trail is owned and maintained by Brookfield Renewable, which owns and operates the Wallenpaupack Hydroelectric Dam. The Wallenpaupack Lake Trail is situated on Brookfield property and is maintained by Palmyra Township, Pike County.


September 2021: D&H Rail Trail

Spanning 38 miles across three counties, the D&H Rail-Trail follows the Delaware & Hudson Railway corridor that transported anthracite coal in the second half of the 19th century. Connecting historic towns, lakes, rivers and farms from the Lackawanna Valley to the Endless Mountains, the trail offers four seasons of enjoyment, enticing hikers, bikers, equestrians and snowmobilers.


August 2021: Howland Preserve

Designed specifically for intermediate hikers and mountain bikers, the Vista Trail is a loop that rewards you with the most spectacular views at the preserve. Named for a small outcropping that’s part of neighboring Camp Lackawanna’s property, the Vista Trail overlooks the Grist Flats in Mehoopany. Together, the preserve and camp create nearly 1,000 acres of contiguous preserved green space on the Vosburg Neck, one of the largest oxbows of the Susquehanna River.
