Oct 2, 2019

Fall in the mountains is perhaps the best time to get outside and enjoy the beauty of nature. At Skytop Lodge, guests can enjoy some of the best outdoor fall activities right on our property. 

These are just a few of the best outdoor fall activities to enjoy in the Poconos:

Hiking and Biking

The conditions are perfect during the fall for hiking and biking throughout the Poconos. The weather is cool in the morning and warm in the afternoon, which allows visitors to enjoy longer hikes and bike rides than they would during the summer months. There are trails that wind throughout Skytop Lodge and the surrounding region, allowing people to get out and explore.

Horseback Riding

Many people travel to the Poconos in the fall in order to enjoy the changing colors of the leaves. One of the best ways to view the fall colors is on horseback. There are many horseback riding trails available for experienced riders, as well as several nearby stables that will offer horseback riding lessons to those who need a little bit of instruction.


Avid golfers know that fall is the best season of the year to enjoy their favorite sport, and many prefer to get up early to play a morning round against the mountain backdrop. Those who are staying at Skytop Lodge will be pleased to know there is an award-winning golf course on-site. 


Fishing is another popular fall activity in the Poconos. The fish are always biting at this time of year, and those who go fishing are able to relax as they soak up the incredible views that surround them. There are several fishing spots at Skytop Lodge as well as a few nearby parks that offer fishing areas.

The crisp mountain air is more invigorating in the fall. If you are planning to stay at Skytop Lodge, you will want to make sure to allow for plenty of time to be outside and enjoy what makes the Poconos special.
