We stopped at the Education Center to hike Tumbling Water Trails. There are a number of other trails that are easy to moderate. Tumbling Waters Trail is a well marked trail that is moderate to difficult. The trail is 3 miles long and well marked in orange. We thought it would take two hours but it took us a bit... More

Went to PEEC and decided to do the Tumbling Waters Trail. The trail is 3 miles with 2 major steep hills, one is called "Killer Hill". The trails are very well marked and easy to follow. You will see a beautiful overlook of Delaware Valley and Kittatinny Mountains in New Jersey. At the half way point, you will take some... More

I had gone here on a school trip back in the 80s, but this time I went to go on a hike. We did the tumbling waters trail. It was very well marked, and easy to navigate. The reward is getting to the falls halfway through. After going down to the falls, it was well worth the trek. Not crowded... More

I loved PEEC ever since I went to summer camp there as a kiddo. I later became a counselor. Now as an adult out of town I rarely frequent... A shame because it really is a local gem! They have great activities for all ages here and this is the place to go for education on all outdoor matters!!! There... More

There are many trails of various degrees of difficulty but nothing difficult. We routinely do the Tumbling Waters trail and also the Fossil trail. It's a great stop if you are passing through the DWGNRA.

Visited here with extended family of over 20 of us. People from 12 to 83 years hiking. Lots of trails to hike/walk and all could do it. Beautiful scenery. Stop into the Visitor Center as it is much more expansive than looks outside. Very informational. Free coffee and water. Two ponds to fish if you bring your gear and have... More

I have hiked at PEEC many times and each occasion immensely enjoy the trails. I typically do all three trails - Tumbling Waters, Ridgeline and Fossil loops - just under 9 miles. The terrain and woods are simply lovely. Tumbling Waters was very full this past weekend and so beautiful. There are some great views and one 'rope tow' on... More
