About 3,000 acres in size, Promised Land State Park is on the Pocono Plateau, 1,800 feet above sea level, and is surrounded by 12,464 acres of Pennsylvanias Delaware State Forest, including natural areas. The forests of the park consist primarily of beech, oak, maple and hemlock trees. Two lakes and several small streams add to the parks outstanding scenic beauty.

This trail was fantastic! Very scenic, lots to see. Not at all difficult to walk, although it has a decent amount of roots. Not too long, goes in a full loop which is great. Trail is easily marked and easy to follow. I can't wait to take my 8 year old sister here. Superb.

Decent trail. Long. Not very scenic. Very rocky at the beginning. I went with my girlfriend at around 11, but once it hits noon it gets very buggy. Not at all hard to follow, very wide and easily marked trail. Unfortunately, not too many places to stop and rest if you need it.

It was an enjoyable hike. It was very peaceful and I was the only one. Beautiful birds chirping and lots of greenery. There are some parts that are rocky and muddy, others are a nice hike. It is a snowmobile trail, so follow the wide trail. It ends up at the far side of the lake, and you have to push your way through some bushes if you want to get to the shore side, but overall, great hike!

Short and quick trail. The sounds of the water flowing is very peacful.

Grew up camping at Promised Land State Park, Conservation Island has always been a fun place to explore.
Today was a chilly cloudy day, it was peaceful and quite. Active Beavers took down a few trees. Tails are marked very well and there is an optional trail to walk along the water.
