Getting There

Stillwater Natural Area, Big Bear Swamp Panther Lake Hiked around Panther Lake on a side trail through the northern part of the Stillwater Natural Area. There are many deer and turkeys and pheasants. The area can be incredibly buggy however, and flat. The Thunder Swamp Trail enters the southern part of the Stillwater Natural Area and follows around Big Bear Swamp, which is muddy, buggy but often filled with beautiful wildflowers. Eventually you get to Coon Swamp Road and around Panther Swamp. Another side trail leads you back along the other shore of Panther Lake to the trailhead.

PA Department Of Conservation and Natural Resources

Hike from the parking lot by Panther Swamp along Flat Ridge Road - this is an unpaved road, but your car should make it with no problems.

Beautiful walk/trail. It was very well maintained making it a easy hike. I enjoyed how there’s built paths mixed in with a nature trail making it enjoyable by all types! The maps timing to finish each trail seemed off on estimate I’d say it took less time, although it was not crowed the day we came. I definitely recommend visiting at least one time. The trading post, museum and other little fun things to do are a bonus too!

For what ever reason the map sent us to the Bushkill Falls parking lot we could not find the trail anywhere the map was pointing us to the ticket booth. So disappointed & confused.
