The Pocono Mountains, or Poconos, encompass forested peaks, lakes and valleys in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. On the eastern edge is the bird-rich Delaware Water Gap, with river beaches and recreation facilities. Trails and bridges connect the waterfalls at nearby Bushkill Falls. Resorts dot the area, many with ski runs and water parks. Boat launches offer access to fishing in Lake Wallenpaupack to the north.
