Description

We won’t be walking all 7.5 miles of trail in this very scenic and varied area. The type of rock formation that looms over the Delaware here is named “Rickenbach Dolomite of the Beekmantown Group.” That information is sure to impress folks at your next party! Major funding for this park was provided by the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission and PPL. Part of this property was acquired by PPL in the 1950s and the trails were created in the 1960s. Talen became the owner and recently sold 179 acres to Lower Mount Bethel Township. In 2007 Wildlands Conservancy, with other groups, helped the Township with their Open Space Plan. These trails are appropriate for children of all ages. Dogs on or off leash are welcome. Wear comfortable walking shoes, your silliest sun hat, and sun screen. Bring walking stick/hiking poles. Trails near and around the Welcome Center are accessible to all. Bathrooms are available at the Welcome Center. DIRECTIONS: From US Route 22, take PA Rt. 33 N to the Tatamy Exit and turn right onto Main Street/Tatamy Road. Stay on Main St/Tatamy Rd for 0.9 miles when it becomes Uhler Road. Continue onto Uhler Road for 2.8 miles. Continue straight onto Front St. for 1.7 miles. Continue onto PA 611 N for just 1.0 mile. Continue straight onto Martins Creek-Belvidere Highway for 5.5 miles. Turn right at the Lower Mount Bethel recreation area and the Jerry Brunetti Welcome Center. Park in the parking lot where we will meet. If you find yourself in Belvidere NJ, you went too far!
