Scranton, PA: Promised Land State Park

pa

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 4.5 miles


Perfect for trail runners, mountain bikers, equestrians, and dayhikers, the trails at Promised Land State Park offer diverse outdoor opportunities at the base of the Poconos.
  • Wallenpaupuck Creek
  • Lower Lake Bridge
  • Marker 21
  • Marker 98
  • Marker 102
  • Marker 23
  • Marker 24
  • Second Bridge

Offering a variety of opportunities and a variety of trail options, the trails at Promised Land State Park have a bit of something for everyone on gentle terrain that doesn't discriminate. This 4.5-miler starts from the Lower Lake Campground (reserve your site online or at the camp office) and travels west on Lower Lake Road, crossing over Wallenpaupuck Creek and Lower Lake itself (look for trail marker for your turn-off into the woods). This route makes a short loop before wandering west on the Mill Brook #1 Trail through thin forest and open fields (passing a deer enclosure) en route to a turnaround point. From here, you can continue exploring Delaware State Forest by looping back on the Mill Brook #2 and Saw Mill trails, or just make it up as you go along.
