Don’t visit the Poconos without doing this hike. First of all, any of the hikes in Hickory Run State Park are well worth doing simply because they take you through a pristine forest laced with clear mountain streams that make you wonder what life was like back when water from these streams ran the local mills. Second, this hike follows a meadow path and abandoned forest roads through a pine forest to the Hickory Run Boulder Field, the only natural phenomenon of this type east of the Mississippi. Bring your children and your camera.
