Pick your hike at Mount Wismer

 

The Get Outdoors Poconos free hike series continues with a choice for participants: Would you rather take it easy with a jaunt through Gravel Family Nature Preserve, or challenge your hiking prowess by scrambling up Mount Wismer?


Either way, you'll see beautiful views and learn more about the open space and high water quality that bless the Poconos. The hikes will be held simultaneously at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 29.
