Get Outdoors Poconos Hike July 15 On Red Rock Trail In Monroe County

The Brodhead Watershed Association will host another Get Outdoors Poconos hike on July 15 on the Red Rock Trail in the Mount Airy Trail Network in Paradise Township in Monroe County starting at 10:00.

Carol Hillestad will lead this moderately difficult hike of about two miles Single-track spurs of gravel curve out and around the center, providing views through oaks and maples toward the north and Camelback to the south.

The spur to Mount Sophia takes you to a pine and hemlock upland at 1,600 feet. When the leaves fall, your climb is rewarded by lovely, long views over hills in all directions, and toward the edge of the Pocono escarpment in Mount Pocono.

The Nature Conservancy-PA calls the naturally beautiful Poconos, with clean air and pure water, “one of the last great places on earth.” This hike will illustrate why.
