Born and raised in Central Pennsylvania exploring the beautiful outdoors by foot and kayak and spending the nights under the stars. I'm typically planning my next adventure before the current one ends and of course enjoy a good beer in the process.

It's a Classic!

You have probably seen photos and it is well worth the stop to see for yourself and snap some shots and get your own take on the mill. It does draw in the people, so be prepared for some crowds.

A Great spot for sunset, sunrise and to enjoy the night!

There is a beautiful campspot among the trees near the knob. It's a great place to enjoy views during sunset and sunrise and to do some astrophotography!

Two for One!

Where else can you visit two lighthouses at the same time! If you are a lighthouse person, make the stop, it a nice area to explore around.

Mosquitos!

This is a beautiful lighthouse and beautiful area. If you are walking the short trail up to the lighthouse, be prepared for mosquitos! I walked in took some photos and ran back to the car, I have never been around mosquitos so bad!

Iconic

One of those places you have seen the photos, and you want to see for yourself and capture your own image. It's a worthwhile visit, but like most of NYC, has the potential to be crowded.

Challenging & Rewarding

This hike has been on my radar for awhile and I finally explored Frozen Run. I used the GPS coordinates and played connect the dots and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the area. It can be challenging at times since there is no trail, but that was expected.

Excellent Side Adventure

We hiked this while exploring Jasper, we hiked down along the canyon and then one of the higher trails back which also give some descent views.

Stunning!

Pyramid Lake is absolutely beautiful, I visited in May and the surrounding mountains were snow covered reflecting perfect reflections in the water. An amazing place!

The hype is real!

If you google the GET, many results will say the best day hike in PA and it really is one of the best if not the best. I highly recommend this hike and my personal preference is to hike counter clockwise.

Beautiful when flowing

Angel Falls is an awesome spot just off the LT, but Falls Run is very seasonal. I have been to Angel Falls when it wasn't much more than a trickle, visit in early spring or after a good rainfall. If the area has been dry, it won't be much more than a large cliff.

AMAZING DRIVE!

I'm from the eastern U.S., this drive is absolutely mind blowing. The views are non stop the entire drive and combine that with countless adventures that you can stop and take in. I'm not sure anything can beat this road trip!

Drive up falls

If you are looking for a super easy waterfall in the area to visit, this is your spot. You can see it as you are driving to it on Dry Run Road and it doesn't take away from it's beauty, it's a gravel road back road to an awesome little waterfall.

Simple and Beautiful

This is a great spot, easy to get to, but yet feels isolated. The hike is a hill, but it's not that bad since it is so short. I have been there with a 5 & 7 year old who did the walk without issue and had fun playing in the sand around the top of the falls.

Excellent Backpacking Trail

I just solo hiked this starting at Krimm Road and hiking CCW. The morning I started was after a surprise April snowfall. There are some beautiful sights along the way and also two shelters.

The Canadian Caribbean!

This was a easy hike with some nice views and the water at First Lake was unbelievable, I'm not sure photos do it justice. It looked like I was in the Caribbean with snowcapped mountains for a backdrop!

Spend the Night, do some star gazing!

This is a rather simple hike and it offers great views. I backpacked and spent the night. There is a great primitive site. I went out star gazing once it got dark. Amazing views at night.

Great base camp!

I arrived and set up camp on a Friday evening. Great spots & options at the start of Tibbet Knob Trail if the 9 Camping spots are full. Next day I backpacked and camped at Big Schloss and then the following night to Tibbet Knob! A place I would return to!

Beautiful & Easy Access

Impressive waterfall with easy access. If you are in the area, it can be a quick stop to experience this waterfall. However, disappointed that the area prohibits dogs.

Beautiful Location!

Bushkill has some beautiful waterfalls & very well maintained trails & walkways. Although it's a beautiful outdoor location, it is also a tourist location and is very crowded. That & the fee is why it is 4 stars

Awesome location!

I have visited many lighthouses, this is easily my favorite, great location that provides opportunity for a variety of photo compositions. If you are traveling through the Outer Banks, this is a must stop!
