Briefly about the general area:
Alpine Mountain has fine slopes and a friendly staff, and going for a hike on the Indian Trail is always a good adventure. Here at Paradise Creek you'll probably meet some people from Henryville, and there are good spots to explore along the Camelback Trail. If you come to this river you will have a good time for sure. Tobyhanna State Park is a perfect place to stretch your legs a bit, and since you're here, you might as well have a look at Redrock Glen. It's always good to have a look at Paradise Falls; Paradise Creek is in the neighborhood of Big Pocono State Park which is a beautiful site.
