The 5 Coolest Ways to Admire the Poconos Foliage This Fall

The Pocono Mountains are filled with some incredible views. With their winding roads, sprawling peaks, and many lush parks, there are hundreds of different ways you can view the foliage this fall.

However, you're looking for something different, aren't you? To make great memories, you sometimes have to seek out the offbeat. In this guide, we'll share five of the coolest, most unique ways to take in the foliage this season.

1. Ride a Fall Foliage Train

Fun for: The whole family

There are few vehicles that can wind their way through the mountains quite like the old steam engine. When you want to take in the outstanding views of Jim Thorpe, try the old Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway.

2. Take a Scenic Vineyard Tour

Fun for: The budding wine connoisseur

The Mountain View Vineyard Winery & Brewery is known for two things:

1) Its fabulous beverages

2) Its even leafier views

Stop in for a tour this fall to admire the foliage with a glass of wine (or beer) in hand.

3. Kayak through the Mountains

Fun for: The outdoorsy types

Sometimes, the very best views of the mountains are from the water. On a quiet lake or river, you'll see the foliage reflecting back from both sides. The view is truly stunning, and Adventure Sports is more than happy to guide you through it.

4. Climb from Tree to Tree

Fun for: The athlete

This one may sound a little dubious, but bear with us. At Blue Mountain Resort's Summit Aerial Park, you'll have the opportunity to climb, jump, and swing through the treetops-all while safely linked up to their course. It's sure to get the adrenaline pumping.

5. Jump Out of an Airplane

Fun for: The thrill-seeker

The bird's eye view is lovely. At 13,500 feet above the ground, you'll have the ultimate view of the changing autumn colors. Granted, skydiving is not for the faint of heart. Still, if you're looking to knock an item off the bucket list and take in those falling leaves at the same time, Sky's the Limit is a perfect choice.

Try Something Different This Fall

So, what's your speed? An easygoing ride with a view or a heart-stopping fall from the sky? Either make for a great way to take in the foliage. Check out any of the businesses on this list to get started today!
