Get Outdoors Poconos: May 20 Hike To Lacawac Lake, Wayne County

The Brodhead Creek Watershed Association will host another in a series of Get Outdoors Poconos hikes on May 20 to Lake Lacawac in Wayne County.
On the journey to the 52-acre lake, guided by Carol Hillestad,hikers will enjoy an easy, well-marked, wide and mostly level trail. Wildlife sightings may include nesting ospreys, hooded mergansers, turtles and beavers.
Flora includes wildflowers such as trout lilies, columbine, elderberry and Quaker ladies – as well as rock tripe, reindeer moss and many other varieties of lichen.
After Lake Lacawac comes another reward for hikers – a spur in the trail leads to a lichen-covered rock ledge and a bench with a view of Lake Wallenpaupack, a sheer drop of 250 feet below.
Hikers should meet at the Lacawac Sanctuary parking lot in Lake Ariel at 10:00 a.m.
The hike is free, but registration is required.  The hike is also limited in size.  To register Call 570-839-1120 or 570-629-2727 or send email to:
