Ridgeline Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This hike is part of the Pocono Environmental Education Center. The trail is well marked and well maintained. You pass through the oak-chestnut forest and then descend from a steep ridge—with the help of a rope—to the gorge below, where you visit the ruins of a cabin and its abandoned earthen dam.

Before you leave the forest, you come to a 15-foot waterfall on Alicia Creek (aka Spackmans Creek) and then hike alongside the stream back to your starting point. The Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC) wasn’t always a learning center. Indeed, the center was built originally as a honeymoon resort, aptly named Honeymoon Haven. But all that changed when the federal government decided to build a dam on the Delaware River 6 miles upstream from the Delaware Water Gap at Tocks
Island and started acquiring property along the river."
