Get Outdoors Poconos Sept. 23 & 24 Hikes In The Paradise-Price Preserve, Monroe County

The Brodhead Watershed Association will host another in a series of hikes in the Get Outdoors Poconos series on September 23 and 24 in the Paradise-Prices Preserve in Monroe County.
At 777 acres, Paradise-Price Preserve in northeastern Pennsylvania is fairly big and a relatively new conserved area. This summer, a dedicated crew from Paradise Township has cleared and blazed trails there – including a 5-mile round-trip path to the falls at Brodhead Creek starting at 10:00 a.m.
On September 23 Carol Hillestad will guide participants on a hike of about 5 miles to the falls in the Preserve.
The hike on September 24 is a 1 mile walk to see a large glacial split rock and enjoy a leisurely walk in the early fall woods.
Meet at Paradise-Price Preserve, Henry’s Crossing Road. Take Route 191 in Paradise Valley to Cranberry Creek Road. From Cranberry Creek Road, take Henry’s Crossing Road. When you cross the railroad tracks, the trailhead is on your right.
The hikes are free, but registration is required.  Call 570-839-1120 or 570-629-2727; email info@brodheadwatershed.org.  
The hikes in the Get Outdoors Poconos series are administered by Brodhead Watershed Association and supported by a grant from the William Penn Foundation.
