This nearly 200 acre preserve was purchased by Pocono Lands Trust in 2015 and contains 4 miles trails. After a vigorous climb, we’ll head south, soon skirting the edge of a forested cliff that drops away sharply. Through the trees, we can see Cherry Valley far below, and around to the east is a glimpse of Delaware Water Gap. Across the valley are Kittatinny Ridge, a nationally important flyway for migrating birds, and the Appalachian Trail. Continuing on our hike, explore imposing stone steps and an overgrown swimming pool — and a wonderful view over Stroudsburg, the former site of Churleigh Hall, the late-Victorian summer home of eccentric businessman Samuel Collins, later renovated into Churleigh Inn. Location: South of Stroudsburg, Pa: Take Route 191 south through Stroudsburg. Entrance to Glen Run Nature Preserve is on the left, just past Stroudsmoor.
