Brodhead Watershed Assn. Hosts Virtual Tour Of Skytop's Indian Ladder Falls In Monroe County

The trail to Indian Ladder Falls is not usually open to the public, but for Brodhead Watershed Association’s annual Ramble, it will be accessible to all – online!
This year, the creek tour in which people “ramble” along some of the Pocono area’s pristine creeks and streams will be held virtually, with video shot on the beautiful grounds of Skytop Lodge in northeastern Pennsylvania.
Skytop’s naturalist, Rick Koval, and BWA’s hike leader, Carol Hillestad, guide this virtual visit to the falls..
Among the natural wonders to be seen: a tiny orchid, some of the largest rhododendrons in Pennsylvania, a state-listed champion mountain maple tree, a rare native plant called white twisted stalk, striped maples, a porcupine den and 400,000-year-old boulders – and, of course, the falls.
Important note: Skytop land is private and patrolled, and trespassing is illegal. Please wait until next year’s Ramble (to be held in the summer of 2021 in person at Skytop) to pay a visit, unless you are a registered guest of Skytop Lodge.
