Directions from Nazareth, PA: Take Jacobsburg Road (SR 1001) north approximately 3 miles to the state park. When the road forks, bear right and travel to the amphitheater parking lot on the right. The trail begins in the southeast area of the lot.

My go-to for a quick hike after work. The steeper terrain on the south side can get a little slippery, but it's not too difficult to traverse as the trail is quite well-travelled. There are several access points to the Bushkill Creek on north side, very popular among families in the summer. Can get crowded during the day, popular for school field trips.

Beautiful trail, some up and down on the back half, not too difficult, park map says 1.9 mi.

This is a nice, short hike that has one little somewhat rough stretch along the southern bank. It shouldn't be a problem for most hikers but some people might not care for that section. Otherwise it is wide, smooth, and shady throughout.

Gets very busy, but is beautiful in the fall!

This is a collection of trails centered around the Bushkill Creek in Jacobsburg State Park. It's perfect for walking dogs and is pretty easy terrain. Also includes the Henry Homestead and the Longrifle Museum. Great way to spend a couple hours outside on a crisp fall day! The best way to get there is to set your GPS to "835 Jacobsburg Road, Wind Gap, PA" and then park in the lot that you pass on the left when you're still on Belfast Rd.
