Hiking & Trails
The Paradise Falls hiking trails stretch across most of our 400 acres and encompass all of the different environments found on the property. From streams and lakes to pine groves and mountain laurels, there is an amazing diversity. Most of the trails are low impact, and are suitable for hiking or jogging. Strong sneakers or light boots are recommended as there are rocks and other obstacles. Poison ivy is present on some trails, but is usually sparse. As with the rest of the Poconos, ticks are present, and should be looked for after each hike.
The trails are great for dog walking but please pick up after your dog (nothing like stepping in a dog pie at the beginning of a two-hour hike). Also please keep your dog on a leash as there are other dog walkers and, more importantly, large wildlife that can hurt your pet (deer, bears, coyotes, etc.)
The trails are maintained by volunteers, and trails are in need of being re-cleared all the time. If you would like to volunteer to adopt a trail, or would like to work with other volunteers to help maintain a trail, contact Pete Sollberger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
