We are soooo lucky to have been able to find the greatest event on the Delaware. Every year PEEC get a grant to be able to have a free 4 hour Kayak or Canoe trip down the Delaware. The weather was beautiful and the Eagles flew over to keep us company. Thank you PEEC!

Took a guided hike with a group of people as we were staying at a nearby spa. The experience was amazing. Nice trails and walking in the woods just has an incredible positive impact on my overall wellness - can't describe in words. There is a small souvenir store and also restroom facilities.

Nice little place off the beaten path which has hiking trails and a couple of lakes. Conservation minded and educational as well as a pleasant walk through the woods.

We signed up for the "fossil walk" led by Dr.K, an extremely knowledgeable and amicable guide and environmentalist. What was anticipated as being able to view a wealth of fossils in various levels and surroundings produced but a single place where only a modicum of fossils were viewed. Otherwise it was a hike in the woods, too often with no group control - members of the group out of sight of those ahead.

Visited the center got info from very helpful staff they informed is of a shower approaching so we waited a bit. Hikes the orange trail it was breathtaking literally and figuratively but we'll worth it. Bring water and good hiking shoes and possibly a snack for this one.
