One of the most beautiful spots in Pike County, in northeastern Pennsylvania, is Childs Park.
Located in Dingmans Ferry, this scenic spot is part of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreational Area.
I spent a Sunday afternoon enjoying the waterfalls, hiking the relatively easy trail to the bottom - seeing more and more of the Pocono Mountains' natural beauty each step of the way.
Many other people were enjoying it along with me including a bunch of teenagers, who were breaking the no-swimming rule (but on such a hot day, I don't know who could resist the sparkling pools and cool misty showers!) The smell of barbecued hamburgers coming from one of the picnic shelters made me wish I had packed my own picnic lunch!
One gentleman was meditating on a large rock, with the flowing stream surrounding him. I paused to watch him for a while, thankful that we have such a beautiful place here in Pike County (indeed, it is but one of many) to renew our strength, to enjoy, to live...
Childs Park - Dingmans Ferry PA. Yours to enjoy.
If you're considering moving to Pike County because you want to discover all of this Pocono beauty more often and from your back yard, feel free to conact me. I'll be happy to help.
