For the first half-mile and the last mile of the trail, the Ridgeline Trail runs concurrently with the Scenic Gorge Trail. The trail wanders through expansive oak-hickory forests, shady hemlock ravines and around numerous seasonal wetlands. Even though the terrain is hilly, much of the area was farmed and rock walls and a stone chimney can be seen along the trail. The trail ends behind Cabin #20. Return to the trailhead via the main campus. Over nine miles of trail can be connected together in the PEEC area to fill the entire day.

Other Information: restrooms are located in the main building; trail guides are available for a nominal fee at the main building; more information about Pocono Environmental Educational Center
