  • We drove up to the top of the summit for a beautiful view of the fall trees in their wonderful colors. It was only about 15 minute drive to the top of the summit.  more »
  • Good thing the park is not too big as it could be very easy to get lost along the trails, especially after the leaves have fallen. Few signs and few markers to lead you. The trails aren't that excitin...  more »
  • Beautiful scenery. Good roads, very clean restrooms at the summit. A warning is posted to watch out for timber rattlers and bears. Easy trails to hike.  more »

  • Connects with State game lands, for miles and miles of single tract and fire road. Active hunting common on the gameland in season, so be sure to dress appropriately if you are venturing off the state park land. There are several loop hikes of varying mileage and intensity. Some have a view of the ski slope and near by Camelback
  • as many times as I drove by the signs for big pocono and finally decided to check it out well I can say it wasnt what I expected its basically a bunch of hiking trails no lake or campground or park for the kids but the view definitely makes up for it some of the best views I have ever seen on certain occasions you will be above the clouds totally awesome and there are grills and tables for cookouts definitely worth checking out if you enjoy a great view
  • Amazing views and great place to walk/hike. Hunting areas are clearly marked so you have zero chance of wandering into a hunters field of view.
  • Amazing views and great trails. Been coming to Poconos sine the 70s and somehow never made it. Only problem is that there were no trail maps anywhere. They were completely out and liked like they had been for a long time.
  • Great place to take a hike! Only issue is there are rattle snake houses and rattle snake warnings! No map of trails but there is signage. Would recommend! Great tourist attraction!!
