Ice Skating in the Pocono Mountains

Ice skating is a sport that combines grace and beauty with fun and exercise.

In the Pocono Mountains, you will find plenty of places to go ice skating, including indoor rinks, outdoor rinks, frozen ponds, lakes and streams. However, before you lace up those skates and do your best Brian Boitano or Tara Lipinski (a Pennsylvania native), make sure the ice is safe before venturing out. Ask locals and look for signposts at state parks including Hickory Run and Promised Land. Strap on a pair of blades and glide across the ice at Skytop Lodge, or check out local rinks in Stroudsburg and Tannersville.
