Breathe in the Fresh Mountain Air
The Pocono Heritage Land Trust manages the Kurmes Preserve, a 400-acre property in Cresco. The preserve is home to loop trails that are perfect for hiking or biking through the woods.
Paradise Valley Road divides the preserve into two sections. The northern section is larger, encompassing thick forests and vernal pools. The rhododendrons and mountain laurel create stunning views when they’re in bloom. It’s also a popular spot for fishing. Access to the northern section is available on Devils Hole Road.
The southern section features a short loop trail. You can access the trail from 289 Phoebe Snow Road.
Public hunting is allowed, excluding bear season and two-week rifle deer season. Hunters must follow PA Game Commission regulations.
