    Great for short hikes, there are several varied distance trails. At some points we were surprised by how windy it was (high points). We look forward to going again when it is warm weather.  more »

    Closed during winter, snow or not. Free ! Well there is nothing to do but look at the beautiful Pocono area. You can park and walk. At the top center road there is a bathroom and water most times. One "pay for" telescope. There are a number of paths you can take. The center stop is a panoramic view. This is right by the ski area. Near the entrance of the splitting road, on the left is a restaurant for the ski lift. Prices are accordingly. Nice view out there too.

    We went to the Camel Beach Mountain Water Park. We really enjoyed the day. We also visited the state park and had driven through it. Also had a ropeway ride. Awesome place to visit.

    Not much of a view on top, but a nice spot for a picnic or a short walk.
