Our visit here was an overnight trip for we had a place to stay at the Lake Harmony Community. However I was amazed what a quick drive this was from our home in Bucks County – just a little further then we’d usually go on a day hike and so I added to our list of day trips close to home.
We did several nice hikes at Hickory Run State Park – great place to visit especially with a family for scenic hiking. We chose one very quiet hike where we did not pass a single person (but not scenic until we hit the dam)- Fourth Run Trail
On day two we woke up early to see the beautiful falls (for it had rained recently)- Hawk Falls Trail – this is a very popular hike for you get a wonderful waterfall view with just a .6 mile hike. However the lot fills up quickly so arrive early. Do not try to approach from the back-end – we tried from the Orchard Trail turnoff and ended up turning around.
A nice stop on the way home was Jim Thorpe – definitely returning there with our bikes and a stop for good beer and delicious Polish Food – by far the best brew pub food I ever had — Red Castle Brewery – great and unusual beers which we brought home a few bottles.
