Several different hiking trails for hikers of all ability including a wheelchair accessible trail. Trail guides available for a small fee. On summer weekends PEEC can be reached by the MCTA Pocono Pony free river runner shuttle service.

Excellent place to escape from "the city" - came here for a department retreat and team building experience. It was excellent! They were able to accommodate the needs of our group and work with us.

I am getting married next year and beginning to look for a place to have it. Is that something that would be an option at PEEC?
