Upper Delaware River Region

The Upper Delaware River region borders New York from Pennsylvania.

This area is rustic and full of the great outdoors that the Pocono Mountains is known for.  It offers gorgeous scenic roadways, fabulous whitewater and plenty to do for the outdoor enthusiast with lots of areas for cross-country skiing, camping and hiking, snowmobiling, bird and eagle watching, biking or just site-seeing and relaxing. Part of the Anthracite coal region,  the Upper Delaware River region was strategic for transporting coal from the area by rail and canal to the lower states.

  • Honesdale "Home of America's Railroads," Roebling Bridge, the oldest existing wire cable suspension bridge in the nation built in 1848 and D&H Towpath provide great opportunities for exploring this part of our nation's history.
  • Other attractions such as Zane Gray Museum and the Dorflinger-Suydam Glass Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary are a few other great points of interest for any group.
  • Exploring the PA Route 6 Trail: US Route 6 is one of the nation's first transcontinental highways, which runs through the Upper Delaware River Region in Wayne and Pike County. What a great start for any voyage!

This area is a great day excursion from other areas in the Pocono Mountains or stay at some of the areas local resorts, B&Bs, country inns or pack your tent or your camper and stay awhile.
