Why You Should Explore Dorflinger-Suydam Wildlife Sanctuary
“Dorflinger” is one of the most historically important names in the Poconos region for the positive economic impact the family made. The Dorflinger Glass Museum tells the story of the glass manufacturer’s long-lasting influence and significant history. The museum is a part of a 600-acre tract of land in White Mills set aside as a sanctuary, which was made possible by the family. The history preserved at the sanctuary, alone, is worth the visit. But, there’s much more for you to see!
When you visit, you can enjoy miles of peaceful hiking trails where you’ll see the beautiful Poconos landscape. Well-maintained trails make a day-hike or a casual adventure easy for all ability levels. Plus, during the winter months, if you’re up for it, the same well-maintained trails transform into spacious cross-country skiing trails. You’re going to love the sanctuary no matter what season!
Other Great Reasons to Visit the Sanctuary
There are many excellent reasons to visit the Dorflinger-Suydam Wildlife Sanctuary. In addition to hiking, scenery, and history, you can also experience a bit of local culture.
