I did one big loop at the Pocono Environmental Education Center. If memory serves it was at least seven miles. It's a beautiful place to hike.

I didn't hike this entire thing, a friend of mine pulled off to a halfway point. I plan to hike it soon and the view at the top is absolutely stunning. A must do if you're in the area.

quite short but very scenic!

Great hike with my dog. Orange trail has beautiful features with waterfalls, scenic views and ponds. Well marked and kept up trails.

Beautiful waterfall on the tumbling Falls trail and nice scenic views!

Summer Time Day Hike:
Sun screen and insect repellant are must

Complexity: Hard ( Because of distance and difference in terrain
Terrain: Rocky and flatland - Couple of ascents and descends. Not terrible but rocks make it difficult to walk
Trekking Pole: Since its long hike with rocks, better carry it
Foot Wear: I have seen people running in trail runners but i would suggest good hiking boots to protect your toes.
Scenic View: In 0.5 miles you will see a scenic spot. Sunrise mountain is on the way 5 miles in . Nothing fantastic after. You can even drive to sunrise mountain, They have build a huge building there.
Trail Markers: Trail markers are easy to locate. Just follow the white trail
Parking: Enough parking for 20 cars
Permit: No fees
Animal Encounter: I have seen lots of squirrels ( even though heard that there are lots bear sightings)
Overall timing: I completed in 8.5 hours at 2.4 mph with lots of photo breaks. Start early to do day hike
Streams : Couple of streams by 7/8th mile

Was a great hike, but definitely more like 20.5+. I day hiked it and it was rough on the old dogs. Very rocky and the rocks were very slippery. When you get to red blaze stay either straight and go left or go left. Right right takes you to a road. Overall a good hike.

Love this cute little hike. Stokes has always been home, and this trail is much easier, making it a nice treat.

I recorded this hike to be 20.5 miles starting and ending at the Culvers Gap parking lot. The majority is on the AT until you reach the southern edge of High Point State Park. Cross Deckertown Turnpike continue on the AT then turn around on the red trail.

Lots of nice views and plenty of wildlife. This is a heavily trafficked area so dont expect to be alone. Start early, rest often, and bring extra water.

One of my favorite places in stokes state forest. Beautiful views of the gorge. The rocks that lead down to the creek are deceptively slippery.

Yellow trail is the best.

Short hike but enjoyable. Nice scenery .

Came here with Boy Scouts and I really enjoyed the views!

Great place to hike from in Delaware Gap. Open during winter when the national park is closed. It has a great hike down to the falls. Trails are well marked and maps with details at the center for nature lovers. Watch for the markings - you can lose your way just following the paths. Several different hikes to take once you park at the center. Spent all day and loved it.

I was following the signs to Buttermilk Falls but there was a gate across the road near the cemetery. I parked there and walked up to these falls. They are only about a quarter mile in from there and an easy hike.

Nice hike with my son for his eight birthday. We parked at Culver's Gap lot and walked along Sunrise Mountain Road to Coursen Trail (blue). Took Stony Brook Trail (brown) to the AT (white) and back down to the parking.

I recorded this loop to be a little more than 6.25 miles. Some very rocky and wet areas to maneuver around. A few small waterfalls. Great views along the AT.

I parked in the Culver's Gap lot to start this loop because I didn't want to walk across Route 206. Went up the AT for a few miles to the Brown/Red Trail. Then took the Red Trail all the way to Stony Lake. The rest of the loop is mostly on paved roads and a portion of Route 206 which is a very busy road. I avoided a section of 206 by taking part of Lackner Trail and an unmarked path past a small pond. I would likely avoid the paved portion if I took this loop again and instead take the Blue Trail near Stony Lake back to Sunrise Mountain Road and the parking area.
Some nice views along the AT. This hike will take around 6 hours depending on how long you rest.

Most of this trail is on paved or muddy hunting roads. I was getting bored until I headed off the main trail and up to a vista near the AT. With the detour it was around 7 miles of mostly easy flat terrain.

great trail. Creek was a little low so it was just a trickle and I missed the loop because the trail wasn't marked that well. but I ended up by the cemetery which was a nice surprise. made for cool photos.

We hiked from the sunrise mountain lookout near Pavilion to the Tower. Some parts were very rocky and other parts were clear sailing. The only advise I really have is be very aware of your surroundings. We encountered 2 bears within 50 ft of each other on the trail. That did make for an interesting hike!

I must have missed the loop part of this but I hiked down to the cemetery and back. It was so awesome checking out the old gravestones (pre civil war!!!!!). Took some great pictures as well. Nice quick hike!

We spent two full days (from 5/19 noon to 5/21 noon) hiking on this trail (out and back) and a little bit further to NJ23 (the intersection of AT trail, blue trail and Iris trail). The AT Sunrise-High Point section was not difficult, and it was quite flat actually. I would rate it as moderate. The view of Lake Rutherford (on the way of Iris Trail) was stunning. The AT Trail from the intersection back to High Point was kind of difficult, mainly because of too many rocks. We stayed at the Mashipacong Shelter for the night and it was lovely. We met a lot of one-day hikers as well as through-hikers. Nice meeting those interesting people.

love it.

Great easy hike near Tillman Ravine. The trail follows the ravine for the most part. Easy park and walk.

Beautiful hike and well maintained set of trails that all lead back to the central welcome center. This PEEC loop described on this website is actually a collection of trails, and when combined add up to 8 miles. There are free maps when you arrive to describe each trail. We took the tumbling waters trail and the scenic gorge trail. Tumbling waters had moderate elevation especially when you reached the falls. In order to view them, you had to walk down a spur trail that had a railing (which is good for those who would find this difficult otherwise) and back up again to continue on the trail. After that there was a very nice scenic view point with a brick fireplace! The scenic gorge trail was absolutely beautiful because it was a trail through an evergreen forest. Definitely captured what's great about this area of pennsylvania. All in all, with those two trails we hiked 5 miles in about 2.5 hours. Very nice welcome center with a class going on when we arrived at noon on a Sunday, along with a collection of local fossils and some stuffed animals like a bear, birds, and other local critters. Very peaceful place, will be back again!

We did the orange loop (tumbling rivers) and it was perfect. There were places where it was steep but also some smoother spots. We did the whole loop in 2 hours but we power walked most of it. I think we started backwards because we ended with the big pond. Going this way seemed to work out better because it started with the more intense trekking and ended on more flat ground.

One of my favorite hikes around me (tumbling water trail - orange). Very educational, great nature center, helpful staff. The trails are well marked and maintained. The orange trail to the waterfall is gorgeous and quiet with some beautiful views almost half way through (before the falls). This trail also cuts through many different types of forest. I love it!
