"It took 24 years of discussions, planning, and hard work among a coalition of many organizations and hundreds of volunteers to enable you to cross what was once known as the “Pochuck Quagmire.” A boardwalk—completed in 2002 and nearly a mile in length, with a 100-foot suspension bridge in the middle of it—allows you to cross the fields, swamps, and marshes of Pochuck Creek without getting wet. In dry weather, the creek is not much more than a trickle. In wet weather, it easily overflows its channel, flooding the land and turning it into a half-mile-wide lake.
Handicap accessible, the boardwalk takes visitors into a land rich with cardinal flowers, goldenrod, thistle, cattails, marsh hawks, black bears, and limestone formations rising dozens of feet above the floodplain. The open views from the boardwalk include Pochuck Mountain to the west and Wawayanda Mountain to the east." Read more
