Biking in the Poconos: Our Favorite Trails

The Pocono Mountains are the ultimate destination for outdoor adventures. One of the best ways to immerse yourself in the area’s stunning natural beauty and see all of the sights is by bike. Biking in the Poconos is a blast, and there’s an abundance of fantastic trails for you to explore. 

 

With three adults-only resorts in the Poconos, the team at Cove Pocono Resorts are experts in the area. Our blog is full of information that will help you plan a romantic getaway to the Poconos. Today, we’ll help you with your Poconos biking needs by giving you a preview of some of our favorite bike trails in the area.

Promised Land State Park

Located about 30 minutes away from all three of our resorts in the Poconos, Promised Land State Park is a gorgeous park and an ideal biking destination. Here, bikers share the road on the 6.5-mile paved road around Promised Land Lake and the park’s campgrounds. For a mountain biking experience, Promised Land State Park is surrounded by Delaware State Forest, which has several designated mountain biking trails for visitors to enjoy. 

McDade Recreational Trail

Located near Pocono Palace, McDade Recreational Trail is a 31-mile trail that spans nearly the entire length of the Delaware Water Gap. While the trail is undoubtedly on the longer side, it’s mostly flat, making for a relatively easy ride along the river and many historical and archaeological sites. There are also separate trailheads, so you don’t have to bike the whole trail. On weekends in the summer, there’s even a bus shuttle running between the trailheads. 

Glen Park

If mountain biking is your preferred method of biking, there’s perhaps no finer place in the Poconos than Glen Park. Glen Park features everything you want in a mountain biking trail, climbs, drops, gap jumps, and more. It’s long been a mountain biking mainstay in the Poconos, so don’t be surprised to see other riders during your outing. 

Go Biking at Our Resorts in the Poconos

While there are many excellent biking trails in the Poconos, you don’t have to leave our resorts to experience a great biking experience. We offer bicycling at all of our resorts, allowing you to get out and check out the scenery without having to worry about renting a bike and dealing with hard-to-find trailheads. 

Biking is just one of the great activities you can enjoy at our couples resorts in the Poconos. In addition to our full offering of activities, we also offer delectable dining options, fabulous entertainment, and romantic suites. Please check availability online or call us at 888-963-3048 for more information.

Four Poconos Activities & Attractions for Adults

With the kids being looked after by someone else, you and your partner are free to cut loose. Whether your idea of a good time involves drinking craft beverages, hiking mountains, or something in between, the Poconos have you covered with a wide variety of excitement. 

Check Out Local Breweries & Wineries

The craft beverage industry is thriving in the Pocono Mountains. While the Poconos isn’t world-renowned as a wine mecca like Napa or Sonoma Valley, visitors are surprised and impressed by the area’s bustling wine scene. If beer is your adult beverage of choice, there are plenty of tasty brews to sample at craft breweries throughout the region. Some of our favorite wineries and breweries in the Poconos include:

Go on a Strenuous Hike

Many kids don’t mind hiking, but they typically have less stamina than adults, and steep trails can be challenging. Your adults-only vacation to the Poconos is the perfect time to look for difficult hikes that the kiddos wouldn’t be able to enjoy. This mountainous region is home to countless hikes, many of which are challenging but rewarding. Mount Misi is one such hike. This rocky trail offers panoramic views of Mount Tammany and the Delaware River.

The Asa Packer Mansion and Harry Packer Mansion give glimpses of luxury living in the Poconos in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Hickory Run State Park is another relic of the past, though this park offers natural history rather than cultural history. That’s just the start; there’s plenty of history and culture to discover in the Poconos.

Creating a Summer Bucket List for Couples

Creating a Summer Bucket List for Couples

It feels like everything comes alive in summer. The sun beckons us outside to enjoy the great outdoors, soaking in the pleasant weather and making new memories. Unfortunately, this glorious month is only temporary, and it can go by in a flash. 

One of the ways you can make the most of the summer is to create a bucket list with your loved one. Creating a couple’s bucket list clearly lays out what you and your partner want to experience this summer, ensuring you prioritize you maximize this beautiful but fleeting season. 

Summer Bucket List for Couples: Tips, Tricks, & Suggestions

The team at Cove Pocono Resorts are big proponents of couples creating a summer bucket list. Our adults-only resorts in the Poconos focus on romance and bringing partners closer together, and that’s what a couple’s bucket list can accomplish.

There are several benefits of creating a couple’s bucket list. To start, it makes you and your partner focus on what you really want to accomplish. Second, it motivates you to stay active. Perhaps best of all, a couple’s bucket list comes with a great sense of accomplishment once you look back on your summer and realize you enjoyed everything on the list. Without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the best tips and tricks for creating a summer bucket list for couples. 

Reflect on What’s Most Important to the Both of You

Personal bucket lists are a little easier to generate because they only require one person to look inward. With a couple’s bucket list, you’ll also have to take your partner’s feelings and interests into account. We recommend you both start brainstorming separately first and then come together to discuss your ideas. Remember, the goal of a bucket list is to complete all of your goals, so you’ll have to make tough decisions together as you decide what activities are worthy of your list. 

Try New Things

It can be easy to fall into old routines and replay your summer favorites repeatedly. While that’s fine, you should also push yourself to try new things. Is there something your partner enjoys but you haven’t tried? Consider putting it on your list. Maybe there’s a restaurant with a new type of cuisine that neither of you has tasted before; that could be a good thing to add to your bucket list. Trying new things together will make you and your partner come closer together. 

Bring a Positive Attitude

A couple’s summer bucket list is only fun if both partners put on a happy face and bring a positive attitude to each adventure. Remember, this is about spending time together and should be exciting and rewarding. Going into an activity with a negative attitude will create unnecessary friction that puts a damper on the entire bucket list. 

If a summer vacation is on your couple’s bucket list, consider staying with Cove Pocono Resorts. We offer romantic accommodations, iconic amenities like champagne glass tubs, and an abundant supply of fun and entertainment in an adults-only environment. We’ll help you cross items off your couple’s bucket list and ensure you have an unforgettable summer vacation. Call us at 888-963-3048 for more information or to make a reservation.
