Boulder Field, National Natural Landmark, is a must-see attraction in Hickory Run State Park. Wear hiking boots if possible for the added foot and ankle support on uneven ground. You can literally drive up to boulder field and walk it, or you can take the hike from Hawks Nest Trailhead for a 7 mile round trip. https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/pennsylvania/boulder-field-trail

Great local hike along a stream with a waterfall. If it has rained recently it may be muddy!

Nearby local hike. Park in the lot, and walk west along the road to the trailhead. If you're feeling brave, take the hike across the street all the way to Boulder Field! https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/pennsylvania/hawk-falls-trail--2?ref=result-card

Shades of Death is a great trail that follows along a stream with a few waterfalls. The name refers to the soil, not the trail itself!

Devil's Hole is a cool hike right outside of Cresco, PA. the hike is fairly easy and flat but you'll need to cross rivers so wear shoes you won't mind getting wet. The trail brings you into really cool ruins of what is rumored to be an old speakeasy or skiing lodge. Legend has it, there was a bottomless lake at this location -- anyone that swam in it sank to hell! There are remnants of a large double fireplace and other parts of the old stone structure

The Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway is a fun old-timey train that will take you up through the mountains. In the warmer months, they do a scenic bike train where you can load your bikes onto the train and they'll drop you at the top of the mountain and you can ride your bikes down. You can bring your own bike or rent one from the company at the beginning of the trail. It's mostly downhill and flat so it's a great ride for the whole family. Be sure to pack a lunch and plenty of snacks

Murphy's has been serving the Pocono's for over 40 years, but our story goes on for almost a century. The original "Log Cabin" was constructed in 1934 from native spruce, harvested entirely from the surrounding woods. Known for many years as The Log Cabin, this rustic mountain lodge was a boarding house for hunters and other outdoorsmen. During a typical deer hunting week, extra cots overflowed into the dining room. Long rows of cots were installed against the wall, while hearty Pennsylvania Dutch Style meals were served on tables lining the other wall

Nick’s Lake House is a great spot right on the lake, in the warmer months enjoy live music while eating on the deck or drinking at the outdoor bar. Nick’s is one of the pricier options around but usually doesn’t disappoint!

Boulder View is another great lakeside restaurant with a huge patio and outdoor bar. This one overlooks Boulder View Lake, a slightly quieter lake as they don’t allow any power boats. Similar to Nicks, they also have lots of live music and fun events.

Piggy’s is the go-to breakfast spot in Lake Harmony, which also means weekends can bring a huge crowd. Breakfast is served all day 7am - 3pm on the weekends and 8am to 3pm during the week. Piggy’s also offers a lunch menu with lots of hot and cold sandwiches and does takeout as well. Right next door is Piggy’s Hog Heaven, an ice cream shack with lots of different options.

We love day trips to Jim Thorpe to ride bikes on the scenic bike train, check out one of the many festivals they have in town or just walk around the quaint town with a ton of history. Our favorite restaurant here is the Stone Row Pub. Led by a husband and wife team, they offer really yummy, fresh food for omnivores to vegans to gluten free folks. They also have a great drink menu and are located in a cozy old row home. The menu changes seasonally so be sure to check their website for the most up-to-date menu. Note: Stone Row is closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays

If you do decide to hit the outlets or make your way to Mt Pocono area, we recommend Pocono Brewery Co for yummy beers and a great Italian menu. They have a huge wood fire oven on the premises to make pizzas and bread. The service when we went here was excellent!
