You'll need at least a weekend to sample all that High Point State Park has to offer.

One of the park's must-do hikes is to High Point Monument (1,803 ft), where you have panoramic views of the Pocono and Catskill Mountains, and the Wallkill River Valley. Additionally, there are 50 total miles of trail here, some of which is open to mountain biking, horseback riding, and in the winter, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and more.
