Attracted by its natural beauty and wildlife, philanthropist George W. Childs purchased this land in 1892. He developed a public park because he believed everyone, not just wealthy landowners, should be able to experience and appreciate being outdoors. The park was designed to highlight and enhance the natural and man-made amenities found here. In 1912, Childs' wife, Emma, deeded the land to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. George W. Childs Park became part of Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area in 1983 and the National Park Service is proud to continue Childs' vision and preserve this park for public enjoyment. The trail follows Dingmans Creek as it flows through a lush ravine, over three rushing waterfalls, and adjacent to the ruins of a mill and several structures built by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Dingmans Creek boasted a dozen mills at its peak. At Factory Falls, the Brooks family ran a bustling woolen mill from 1823 to 1832, a rarity outside of big cities. The mill ruins are visible next to the waterfall. Fulmer Falls is a short distance downstream from Factory Falls. Here, the Civilian Conservation Corps built a rustic-style pavilion for a scenic picnic spot. Finally, the trail loops past a third waterfall, Deer Leap Falls. Other Information: the trail is accessible to the first waterfall (approximately a third of a mile, one-way); restroom located at trailhead. Restrictions: dogs and other pets not permitted; swimming and wading is not permitted anywhere within George W. Childs Park; must stay on the trail at all times.

Lost River Caverns is a natural limestone cavern. It was discovered in 1883 by a limestone quarry operation which was digging where the parking lot now stands. The operation accidentally created the entrance to the cave. Since that is the only entrance to the caverns, there aren't any bats, rats or snakes or any Native Americans, dinosaurs or cavemen in the cave. In 1930, the caverns were opened to the public & at that time walkways, handrails & lighting were added. Other than that, Lost River Caverns is a completely natural cave. According to geologists, Lost River Caverns started forming within the past 250,000 years. It was formed by the work of the water table dissolving away the limestone to form the chambers & passageways. The water table has since dropped, allowing seepage from rainfall & melting snow to remove minerals from the rock above the caverns, deposit them on the rock surface & building up to varying formations.

In the early 1960's our family began making candles in the kitchen. It didn't take long for the mess we created in the kitchen to become a little too much for Mom. We were then sent to the basement to make our candles. From here we began to grow into a business and in 1966 my father, Edwin Coover, registered the House of Candles name. In the early years my father made and sold candles to many stores and brokers who then resold our products. At one time we were making candles for Sears nationwide! At the same time this was going on we were in the beginning stages of our retail store. We began selling candles to the public for our wholesale prices. Word spread that a little candle shop off the beaten path was selling quality candles at a great price. The demand from our customers was so great that we had to discontinue the mass production of candles for our wholesalers. Our focus was now fulfilling the needs of our retail operation. Today, we are in the second generation of candle makers. Edwin's son, Eddie, and his wife Debra, now own and operate the business. Here at House of Candles we still manufacture all our own votive, pillar, jar and various other candle products on the premises. If you have the chance, you really don't want to miss our daily candle making demonstrations. We still do special orders and custom work for weddings, fundraisers, business functions, you name it, we will try our best to make it.

Vineyard History: Tolino Vineyards is a family owned and operated nine acre vineyard and winery established in 2007. We are committed to growing the finest grapes and preserving the pristine rural landscape while hand crafting artisanal wines. Our passion for winemaking grew out of our agrarian roots, our strong Italian heritage and our love of spending time and sharing a glass of wine with our family and friends. Shortly after Carl Jr purchased the 76 acre farm at 280 Mount Pleasant Road, he was looking for suggestions on uses for the land. Carl's daughter, Mandy, thought that the hilly property with the beautiful views would be a perfect spot to grow grapes. The dream was born, and the hard work of planting a vineyard had begun. Carl and his four children spent many Saturdays picking rocks, amending soils, preparing the land, and planting the vines. Mandy has a background in plant science and was involved with the planning of the vineyards and the selection of the vines. After the planting, Carl Jr's son Carl continued working in the vineyards under Paul Shumaker learning the unique craft of grape growing. After a few years in the vines, Carl moved into the winery when it opened in the spring of 2013. Carl Jr's daughters Liz and Mandy focus on marketing and events, and his son Mark has taken over the role of working in the vineyard. We invite you to gather some friends and visit our beautiful estate vineyard nestled in the rolling hills of Northampton County. Relax with a glass of your favorite selection and take in the majestic mountain views, the tranquil rows of vines, and the serene rural landscape. Our vineyard is the perfect place to spend the afternoon sipping wine and enjoying the countryside. Tolino Wines: Our unique terrain allows us to grow wonderful grapes to create an impressive selection of wines. We nurture the classic Vinifera and Hybrid varieties of grapes for our winemaker to craft our Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Vidal Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Mama's Rosé, Papa's Red, Chambourcin and Ice Wine. Our 2010 Cabernet Franc has been very good to us. We are proud to have won the Double Gold medal and the Governor's Cup at the 2014 Pennsylvania Farm Show Competition as the Best of Show Dry Grape Wine in the state. Wine Tastings and Sales: Visit our tasting room for a premier tasting for $5.00 that includes tasting 6 wines and includes a souvenir glass. We also offer a free tasting of up to 3 wines. Enjoy the view of the vines on our patio, or bring a savory snack to pair with our wines in our picnic area. Wines can be purchased every day, except select major holidays, in our tasting room. Our wines are also available for sale at the Easton Farmer's Market on Wednesdays during the summer and in a few select restaurants.
In 1985, Priscilla Moore began baking cheesecakes using a time tested family recipe in her home near the village of Canadensis in the beautiful Pocono Mountains. She soon sought to convince local chefs to try her product and, after receiving a thoroughly positive response, a business was born! After a few months, a retail outlet opened on route 390 in Mountainhome, PA and, within the first year, the response was so overwhelming that she decided to expand to the current location on route 611 in Swiftwater. By 1994, after several additions, she more than doubled the original size of the baking and retail space.Through the years the Pocono Cheesecake Factory became one of the "must try" attractions in the Poconos. In 2007, Priscilla decided to retire and asked her long time friends, Al and Carole Johnson, to carry on the tradition of uncompromising quality and freshness. They agreed and since then have been continuing to bake, using the same classic recipe and providing a customer service experience that is second to none.

Grey Towers was built in 1886 by James and Mary Pinchot as a summer retreat. It was James who first recognized the reckless destruction of natural resources that was overtaking the nation in the 19th century. James encouraged his eldest son Gifford to consider a career in forestry, thus introducing the idea of conservation to America.Gifford Pinchot went on to establish and serve as the first Chief of the US Forest Service, and he was twice elected Governor of Pennsylvania. Between family, friends and political associates, Grey Towers was always bustling with activity and was central to advancing the Pinchots' social, political and conservation ideals. In 1963 the Pinchot family donated Grey Towers and its surrounding 102 acres to the US Forest Service.
Hickory Run State Park, located in Carbon County, stretches across 15,990 acres in the less forested western foothills of the Pocono Mountains. The park is famous for Boulder Field, a flat area covered with large, round boulders that look like the surface of the Moon. Sand Spring Lake has a lovely swimming beach and a disc golf field, and it is one of three permanent spots for orienteering courses. The area has hundreds of picnic tables, playground equipment, and restrooms.
