We were at a wedding in Shawnee and spent 2 extra days exploring the area. If you like nature and hiking; this is the place for you! We walked along trails, visited some of the small towns, viewed the river from look out points, explored the falls at Dingmans, Raymondskill, and the Pocono Environmental Center.The McDade Recreational trail extends over 30 miles and includes fairly well defined paths; some more rustic than others, for hiking or biking. You can canoe or kayak on the river and rentals are available from the Edge of the Woods Outfitters. The area is about 2.5 miles from the border of CT, less than 2 hrs from NYC and parts of NJ. The foliage and weather were perfect for a great fall weekend.
