Those wanting to get away from it all can do so here in the Poconos. Whether its a walk through a quiet forest, a bike ride down an old rail road track along a river or being the first to leave tracks on a cross country ski trail, solitude in nature can be found in the Poconos. There are thousands of acres of land set aside for nature in the Poconos. Many communities have houses that are nestled within the woods to allow nature to be nature. You'll see deer, turkey and the occational bear right in the backyards of the homes here. The Nature Conservancy named the Pocono Mountains one of the world's "Last Great Places" several years ago because of its unique glaciated ecosystem, which features several rare or globally endangered species. Those wanting to explore the local ecology can participate in area hikes lead by nature guides who will explain the local floura and fauna as well as wildlife and geological features of the Pocono Mountains.
