Best hiking trails in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and they have many programs available including guided hikes and the EcoZone discovery area. Great facilities for events as well. Check their website at www.peec.org or Facebook page for schedules and more information.

My boyfriend booked us a two hour waterfall tour through PEEC. It was $14 a person. The guide said we would stop and see if one area was open yet for the season then stop by two other areas. We went to the first site and it was open. We were a group of approximately 13-14 adults. We ended up... More

Found this online and went here for a few hikes, but also went into the education center, which was terrific for teaching kids about habitats, the environment, nature, etc. We had a guide who was super-enthusiastic about her mission to teach kids to love and understand the great outdoors and she was really inspiring. We saw inside there a beaver's... More

We hiked the Tumbling Waters Trail and the waterfall was amazing! It has 3 miles and we hiked it in under 2 hours with a baby on our back. Wear hiking shoes, as the trail can get rocky. The education center was nice and my daughter liked looking at the animals on display. We will definitely come back here to... More

We made a brief visit on our way home. They weren't actually open yet but we looked around a bit. Place is really geared for kids. They have lots of trails which we hope to check out on our next visit.

PEEC is dedicated to sustaining the environment of the Pocono area, with great education and nature programs. I was there as a director with Neat Retreats, we stayed in the exclusive Yurt Village, the award winning dining hall was able to accommodate all special nutrition requests, and the Nature Center provided us with an excellent spot for YOGA. Thank you,... More

The center has a museum for kids where they can climb into a eagle nest and go into a beaver dam. There are plenty of trails to walk including a fossil trail that my grandchildren love. They also have great programs throughout the year.

The staff is EXCELLENT. Friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and very informative. All sorts of cool things to see and experience. Beautiful nature trails and little surprises throughout the Center's landscape. Go and experience a great day with the kids.

Just spent a relaxing and educational weekend at PEEC with about fifty Girl Scouts, learning winter survival skills! The education director, Allison, is knowledgable and very engaging with kids and adults! The lodges on site are clean and well equipped. The food at the mess hall is simple but plentiful. Looking for next winter's 'Expert' level winter survival training!
