Discover the Best Things to Do at Lake Wallenpaupack
Indulge in Water Activities
The best thing you can do at Lake Wallenpaupack is to enjoy the water! This gorgeous lake is one of the largest in Pennsylvania, covering more than 5,700-acres! That leaves a lot of room for various activities. At Silver Birches, we want to make it easier for you and offer services to ensure you have an incredible vacation! You can, for example, take advantage of our boat rentals, paddle a kayak to get the best views of the lake, or even rent a paddleboard! They are all fun and relaxing, and we bet the entire family will enjoy it!
Hike or Bike Around the Lake
Another great thing to do at Lake Wallenpaupack is to hike or bike around it! The Lake Wallenpaupack trail offers gorgeous views of the area as well as a lovely stroll. Approximately 1.5 miles long, the trail takes you along the water and over Wallenpaupack Creek. Begin your journey on the gravel road near the parking lot and enter the woods to the sound of birds singing above you. Go downhill toward the Wallenpaupack Creek bed and marvel at the nature around you. Cross the Wallenpaupack dam and proceed on your hike through the forest filled with chestnut oaks and hemlocks and along the water.
Tip: You can also rent a bike! BikeShare is a community program created by the Downtown Hawley Partnership and other sponsors, which make the bikes free of charge! You can bike from dawn to dusk and must return your rental that same day!
Eat Delicious Food and Attend Special Events
After having all that fun, it’s time to sit back and relax! The Dock on Wallenpaupack is the perfect place for that. Join us for Lake Break in the pub from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and enjoy our original drinks and snacks!
