Good hiking. Trails connect to Appalachian Trail. Very scenic. Bring a map. Loops can be pretty long. We spent all day - bring water and food. Dog friendly with some natural springs where they can drink along the trail.

One of the most beautiful places to visit in the area. Wonderful trails to hike for all skill levels, a nice area to come and relax in a secluded, awe-inspiring environment. Also, the tree/plant identification trails and small areas are enriching and educational. And another thing - the birdhouses built for the swallows and other types of birds are a great thing to see as a lover of avian life. All in all, my favorite place to spend a day in this whole area is the Lehigh Gap. It truly has something for every nature lover.
