Spring is on the way here in the Pocono Mountains. That means the sun will be shining and the fish will be biting very soon. Fishing and Hiking in the Poconos are just a couple of the best ways to take in the nature that surrounds the Mountains of Northeast Pa. Some Pocono Communities have their very own lakes to fish in and their own trails to hike. Here are a couple of our famous Pocono State Parks that offer some good fun for the great outdoors.
Come and enjoy yourself at The Francis E Walter Dam! This is a Park located in Lake Harmony in the Northeastern Region of Pennsylvania known as the Pocono Mountains. Take a walk through and breathe in the Fresh Mountain Air from the Lehigh River and the surrounding Trees and wildlife. There is An 1,800-acre project, with a small 80-acre reservoir but no Corps-operated recreation facilities. There is a boat launch area (no ramp), and there is a 10 hp limit. Picnicking, hiking and fishing are available, as is hunting, in season, on adjacent Pennsylvania Game Commission lands.
The Lehigh Gorge State Park awaits all of the Pocono Mountain Travellers! This park goes a little unnoticed in the Poconos. You may find yourself hiking or biking through the trails and stumble upon all kinds of wildlife and natural beauty.There is Spectacular Scenery all across the Gorge.The 25 Mile downhill grade from White Haven to Jim Thorpe makes the Trail popular with cyclists who use various ways from the Jim Thorpe area to reach the White Haven trail for an easy downhill pedal.
