Wallenpaupack Lake Trail
Lake Wallenpaupack is a beautiful location, so beautiful we built Cove Haven Resort on its shores. You can explore the beauty of the lake and its forest surroundings on Wallenpaupack Lake Trail, a three-mile hike along the lake. There’s never a bad time to hike the Wallenpaupack Lake Trail, but when the dense forest begins to change colors, it truly becomes alive.

Known as the “Niagra of Pennsylvania,” Bushkill Falls is one of the state’s most stunning natural attractions. Conveniently located about ten minutes away from Pocono Palace Resort, there are four different hiking trails at Bushkill Falls – Green, Yellow, Blue, and Red. We recommend the Yellow Trail, which allows you to view the Main Falls, Lower Gorge Falls, Laurel Glen, and Upper Canyon, all in about 45 minutes of hiking. Besides the falls, you’ll also take in views of the area’s gorgeous fall foliage.
