Hickory Run State Park
Hickory Run is an extraordinary 15,990-acre State Park spread across the gorgeous Poconos Mountain. Swim in Sand Spring lake in the summer, ice skate in the winter, or hike 44 miles of trails during the spring. Hunting is also seasonal at Hickory Run.
Trail biking is a popular and wonderful way to experience the beautiful terrain of the Poconos. No matter the season, you’ll find the landscapes to be a beautiful escape from the everyday. Take a short day trip or take a guided moonlight bike ride through Lehigh Gorge State Park.
Whitewater Rafting at Pocono Whitewater
One of the most fun adventures you can have is on a whitewater raft! This is a great way to spend the day with family or large groups in the Poconos. Get your adrenaline going when you take a professionally guided trip on the Lehigh River in the Leigh River Gorge State Park. Either captain your own raft, take a specialty trip, or explore family style with Class I-II rapids where you can relax and take in the scenery.
Seven Tubs Natural Area
Venture to the 500-acre Seven Tubs site located in Plains Township. The main feature of the area is a stream called Wheelbarrow Run that flows through a ravine where a series of large potholes or “tubs” are gouged out of the underlying bedrock. There are hiking trails that lead to Tubs area, allowing visitors to enjoy scenery, creek swimming, and a waterfall!
