Sherwood Forest Greenway - Jackson Township, PA

A woods walk – mostly beech, with oaks, maple, and some white pine and hemlocks, too – leads past a sturdy stone row and uphill through a leafy, dark green tunnel of arching beech saplings. At the summit – 1,125 feet up – participants get their reward: views of Delaware Water Gap to the left, Wind Gap to the right, a glimpse of Palmerton Gap and long vistas of Camelback and state gamelands.
