The Blooming Grove 4-H Hiking Trail

This nearly seven-mile trail system was developed by Pike County 4-H Club members in cooperation with the Bureau of Forestry. It features two loop trails encircling hardwood swamps and a meadow. The rail is also open to snowshoe users in winter and is located just west of PA Route 402, about one-half mile south of US Route 6.

Thunder Swamp Trail System

This trail system traverses 26 miles of southern Pike County. The trail is highlighted by mountain streams, swamps, varieties of forest types, forest management practices and other natural features found on the Pocono Plateau. This trail system offers short loop trails for day use and longer loops for overnight camping. Permits are required if campers "car camp," group camp, (more than 10 persons) or stay at the same location for more than one night. Overnight backpack camping is allowed.
