The 15,990-acre Hickory Run State Park, Carbon County, lies in the western foothills of the Pocono Mountains. This large park has over 40 miles of hiking trails, three state park natural areas and miles of trout streams. The Boulder Field, a striking boulder-strewn area, is a National Natural Landmark.

Great short winter hike. Suitable for kids but be careful around the waterfalls as there are many steep /slippery spots. Great views and waterfall accessible from top and bottom!

Pretty views of a water fall. Was an bit icy over the weekend so trek carefully.

Beautiful hike at Hickory Run State Park. This is part of a series of trails you can walk for hours. Got to the Skyline from Gould trail which is where the directions took us to. Just follow Gould and it will take you to Skyline. Definitely going back to explore more of the trails there.

Beautiful place...

Beautiful trail but very very slippery during winter.

It was a very nice hike in a beautiful area. Use caution during snowing conditions as the trail was icy. Well worth it!

Beautiful winter hike. A bit icy which was tricky at the start, but after that it was a nice stroll through the rhododendrons along the creek. Three dams made for spectacular ice!

Cool hike in the snow. Waterfall was worth it. Easy hike, moderate in the snow

Lovely place with lots of trails and wildlife. Very serene and the beach is also nice. The trails range from easy to difficult. I love deer trail. It's quite beautiful. The trail was a bit humid and there was quite a few nats, but those things are to be expected in the outdoors.
