The 3,002-acre Beltzville State Park is in the southern foothills of the Poconos. Pohopoco Creek, an excellent trout stream, feeds the 949-acre Beltzville Lake, which is a rest stop for migrating waterfowl and is a destination for boaters and anglers. The sand beach and picnic pavilions are very popular. Recreational facilities are a result of a cooperative effort of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources-Bureau of State Parks and the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

Very easy hike. Pretty waterfall at the beginning however the rest of the hike is pretty much just walking in the woods. Not a lot of climbing or things to see. I'm glad our family (2 adults, 5yr old and 4yr old) did it but we'll probably look for something a little more challenging our next visit.

Nice trail! Loved the water falls

A really nice family hike.

Easy walking, nice falls

A nice trail for an easy hike. Very good for beginners.

Wonderful lake, and really nice trail. Had a run in with a bear and cub here last year... Great lake when it is open for business and not closed due to "issues" Plenty of Geocaches in the area too!

We were very pleasantly surprised at these trails. There are a TON of unmarked trails so you may wander off, but most times you just loop back to the yellow trail. The white trail was so incredibly nice with soft needles underfoot and a beautiful forest. The green trail was short, but it offered some fantastic photo opportunities. Not difficult at all to navigate.

Loved this trail. Great place for the family. Finished in 3 hours with a few water breaks.

Ground Pine trail was overgrown, clearly blazed. On the other hand, Christman Trail was a delight . At times the pathway meandered thru open spaces alongside the woods and other times it was an easily navigable path thru pine and deciduous trees. Clearly blazed, not a soul to be seen this Sunday afternoon in June. Beltzville State Park itself by the lake was chocker-block full with families enjoying the facilities.

A nice and easy trail for the whole family. There's a waterfall and a nice little swimming hole too.

took the christman trailhead in and covered all the trails off that entrance. a good walk. seems to be the place to go for swimming as well so expect it to be busy and noisy on hot days. lots of tree cover kept us cool.
