Area to visit nearby
While staying at Santosha on the Ridge Bed and Breakfast in the Poconos you will have a multitude of options. Consider any or all of the following possibilities.
Bike the McDade Trail www.nps.gov/dewa/ in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area
Hike up to Sunfish Pond from Worthington State Forest
Hike through some of the prettiest forests in New Jersey to a glacial lake 1,000 feet above the surrounding area.
Trail surface: The Gap is notorious for rocks and will give feet and joints a good pounding. It can be hiked in sneakers… but we wouldn’t recommend it. The Appalachian Trail is rockier than the Dunnfield Creek Trail, in our opinion.
Canoe or Kayak
Canoe along Delaware for a great adventure
Take a stroll among 4 billion-year-old stones at nearby Columcille Megalith Park and Celtic Art Center www.columcille.org
Columcille draws its inspiration from Iona– a tiny island of four-billion-year-old stone off Scotland’s West Coast. The island has been a source of spiritual guidance and awakening for centuries. Written accounts of Iona as a place of pilgrimage date back to the seventh century and oral histories and legends preserve traditions that stretch back to the earliest times.
