1. Drive to the Summit

The paved road to the summit of Camelback Mountain provides incredible autumn views of Pennsylvania, and — on good weather days — New Jersey and New York as well! It’s one of the most amazing Poconos fall foliage scenic drives! So even if you aren’t up to hiking, you can still soak in the stunning surroundings.

2. Take a Hike

The 8.5 miles of hiking trails at Big Pocono State Park let you be up-close-and-personal with the falling leaves, as well as getting a bird’s eye view from many of the stunning overlooks. You can even hike to the top of Camelback Mountain. Be aware that some of these trails are quite steep and are not for a beginner hiker or a leisurely stroll!

3. Enjoy a Picnic Lunch

Picnic tables at Big Pocono State Park boast of a “picnic with a view” with an elevation well above sea level at 2100 feet. If anything could improve on the natural beauty of the Poconos in the fall, it would be a bottle of wine and a well-packed lunch of local offerings.

4. Dine at Cameltop Mountain Lodge
