Get Outdoors Pocono Series Gives The Public Exclusive Access To Buck Hill Trails

By Joanna Stone

The "Get Outdoors Poconos" series invites the public to hike Buck Hill's private trails! The Brodhead Watershed Association is privileged to obtain exclusive access to this one-time event.

Buck Hill Falls is situated within Jenkins Woods, a section of old growth forests of oak, hemlock, white pine, birch, and tulip poplar that was spared from logging in the late 1800s.

The Spring is exploding with delicate shoots and blossoms. The scenic beauty of this enchanted forest attracts many outdoor enthusiasts from all over the tri-state area to hike its trails. The hike includes beautiful waterfalls and stunning views of the nearby Chestnut Ridge section of the Pocono Plateau. The opportunity to hike this picturesque trail is an excellent outdoor adventure.

The Buck Hill/Jenkins Woods hike will be led by the Pocono Avian Research Center's Darryl Speicher, who is a board member of the Brodhead Watershed Association. The Brodhead Watershed Association and the William Penn Foundation are sponsoring this event as part of the Get Outdoors Poconos series. For program details, visit:
