Getting There

This is a pleasant walk through an interesting forest. The only hard part about this hike is the walk along the road to the trailhead. Do not park along the road the rangers have been known to ticket. Expect to see plenty of wildlife including deer and birds.

Frances Slocum State Park 570-696-3525 francesslocumsp@state.pa.us

The park is five miles from Dallas and ten miles from Wilkes-Barre. From exit 170B of I-81, take PA 309 north about seven miles (7.2). Turn right (east) on Carverton Road and go about four miles (4.2). Turn left (north) on 8th Street Road and go about one mile (1.3). Turn left (west) onto Mt. Olivet Road and go one mile. The park entrance is on the left. Enter the park and park in a lot, walk to the trail head (no parking by it) just where the raod to organized camping crosses the lake.

This loop was a perfect morning hike for us. We did it in about 2 hours with a 4 year old, 2 year old, 6 month old and our dog. It tired everyone out just in time for nap time. The trail was maintained and clean. It is a gorgeous walk that is also slightly challenging and feels like a workout. Definitely bring bug spray. The gnats are bad everywhere this year, but the bug spray kept them away.

What a gorgeous and easy trail! The trees are magnificent. I marked bugs because they were pretty bad. Bring some bug spray! Great for kids.

Recently moved the NEPA and this has been one of my favorites yet. It was an easy, well marked and maintained trail that my dog was able to do easily as well. Will definitely be back!

Great trail- heavily wooded and secluded with beautiful tall trees and greenery this time of year. Pet friendly too!
