Escape Into Nature

Explore the outdoors at the Upper Paradise Nature Preserve in Cresco. The Pocono Heritage Land Trust manages this 511-acre property, which is a popular spot for hiking and fishing. The preserve encompasses iconic Pocono scenery like crystal clear waterfalls, rhododendron thickets, and serene forests.

Bring your fishing rod, because Cranberry Creek is a great spot to cast a line. The area is a designated High-Quality Coldwater Fishery and Class A Wild Trout Fishery.

Parking is available at the main trailhead on Henry’s Crossing Road. You can also park at the kiosk on Cranberry Creek Road and walk through the Nothstein Preserve.
