The Inn-to-Inn Trail, The Poconos

The Poconos is littered with places to stay, with plenty of hotels (some of them are abandoned honeymoon resorts in the Poconos). The best way to enjoy all the luxury lodgings and comfy cabins that the Poconos has to offer is with an inn-to-inn hike like the Inn-to-Inn Trail, which takes hikers through bubbling brooks, gushing waterfalls, and thick hemlock forests.

The Inn-to-Inn hiking trail in the Poconos takes hikers 40 miles down the mountain from Skytop Lodge to Buck Hill Falls. The ancient inn at Buck Hill Falls may no longer be there, but hikers can still enjoy pleasant stays at Skytop Lodge, Pocono Manor, Crescent Lodge, and Country Inn along the way down to the gorgeous resort at Buck Hill Falls.

We all have our own vision of the perfect getaway – from exploring the big city to escaping to a tiny Pennsylvania village. Have you ever considered, though, booking a stay at a lodge that has everything you could want (and more!) and just hiding away for a few days? You won’t find that difficult to do when you book a stay at the best cabin rental in Mountainhome, Pennsylvania, a luxurious lodge that’s brimming with unique amenities.

A northern Monroe County municipality is hoping to fix a congested major intersection.

The intersection of Routes 611, 940 and 196 in Mount Pocono is known for back-ups and accidents.

Plans to help alleviate those issues have been in the works for quite some time.

State Rep. Tarah Probst is introducing legislation that would ban the sale of consumer-grade fireworks in Pennsylvania.

“The usage of fireworks has become a real nuisance in some areas, causing stress to pets and livestock, depriving people of sleep, and negatively impacting veterans and others with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD),” said Probst, a Democrat representing parts of Monroe and Pike counties, in a sponsorship memo.

“Additionally, there have been daily complaints in the summertime of people not following the law and shooting off fireworks in small towns, boroughs, and residential areas, potentially causing collateral damage throughout our communities,” Probst said in the memo.

The following have announced their candidacy for Barrett Township Supervisor, for the Primary election in May 2023:
