Tanners Falls is a 15 minute drive out of town. It’s located on State game land with seasonally stocked fresh water trout. Perfect for hiking, fishing or a family photo shoot. Enjoy this 1.0-mile out-and-back trail near Honesdale, Pennsylvania. Generally considered an easy route, it takes an average of 26 min to complete. This is a popular trail for birding, hiking, and walking, but you can still enjoy some solitude during quieter times of day. The trail is open year-round and is beautiful to visit anytime. Dogs are welcome.

The collections are fascinating, covering the country's first locomotive, the importance of the Erie canal to early Americana industry and the country’s expansion, and documenting through many exhibits how the community and its customs evolved as it navigated through our country's history. There are two spectacular exhibits to highlight. First, the exquisite cut glass produced by the Dorflinger factory and his contemporaries. For 40 years from 1870 to WWI, these pieces were sent around the world to be used at formal events by Presidents, monarchs, and in the finest restaurants. The artistry is nothing short of astonishing, especially when you see the tools they had to work with. It is impossible to day to make glass of such quality by hand. Second, parts of the collection of the American Impressionist, Mel Stark, a contemporary and friend of Whistler and other American and European Impressionists. The diversity and quality of his work deserves much greater awareness and appreciation. Truly not to be missed.

From the moment you hit the road, the fun begins because the drive is part of the magic of a visit to Narrowsburg. Expect lots of peace signs and doves painted on the sides of barns — not far away is the original site of the 1969 Woodstock Festival at Bethel Woods. On the journey home, make sure to route your drive to Route 97 through Barryville and along the Delaware River; a portion of this drive is called The Hawk’s Nest and it’s considered one of the most scenic drives in New York State. From there, the road dumps you into Port Jervis, where you stop to shop and eat, then can catch Route 23 though New Jersey all the way home on back roads though High Point State Park.
