Last Known StatusClosed For Season

Located in the Delaware State Forest, this area offers about 14 miles of ATV trails with scenic views of the Pocono Mountains. The majority of the trails are hardpacked and smooth but there are some sections that are a bit rugged with sharp rocks and scattered tree roots. During wet weather the trails often become soggy and waterlogged, creating some wide and deep puddles.

The trails and staging area are only open during daylight hours but camping can be found a couple minutes away at Peaceful Woodlands Family Campground.

The trails are open for the summer season Friday before Memorial Day through the last full weekend in September and reopens in the winter the day after deer hunting season (generally two weeks after Thanksgiving) through April 1.
