Just passed Lake Wallenpaupack this sanctuary sports 10 miles of hiking trails of varying difficulty. And the road up to it is scenic and beautiful. It's a favorite nature getaway.

I love this sanctuary. It has multiple trails, one of which has a dock and bench about half way through the mile-long trail. I usually bring a book and read at the dock, with the only interruption being the sweet wild-life that nest in these trails. It's very quiet, and the trails are easy to navigate. *Watch out for small orange lizards, they're easy to miss while walking be careful not to step on them :)

The most notable feature of Lacawac Sanctuary is Lake Lacawac - a 52 acre glacial lake preserved in almost pristine condition (totally free from development or encroachment). The Lake was declared a National Natural Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior in 1966. Lacawac features a natural boreal bog, the Wallenpaupack Ledges Natural Area, Partner Ridge, a native plants garden, demonstration forest/deer exclosure plots, and six public hiking trails. Suggested duration 1-2 hours
