Trails

Refuge trails, boardwalks, and kiosks provide family-friendly wildlife viewing areas at two different refuge properties. The trails located at the 2138 Croasdale Road, Stroudsburg, PA 18360, are paved, former golf cart paths and ideal for walking with strollers or wheelchairs (though there are steep hills at several sections if choosing to do the full loops). The trail located next to 130 Lower Cherry Valley Road, Saylorsburg, PA 18353 is dirt/loose gravel and contains several moderately-steep inclines. Need help navigating? Print your own trail map or pick up one of the yellow trail description brochures when you arrive on the refuge.
