The Herrick Lodge is centrally located in the heart of a Pennsylvania winter wonderland. Lodge guests can enjoy any or all of these activities:
There are two major ski areas right near us; Elk Mountain is six-miles away and Montage/Sno Mountain is less than a thirty-minute drive.
The Herrick Lodge’s property literally backs up onto the main connecting snowmobile trail that is between two abandoned railroad beds, which are groomed regularly. Snowmobiling is allowed on these trails with proper permits. Our guests can access these trails by exiting The Herrick Lodge’s parking lot and right onto the trails. Please note: four-wheelers/quads are NOT allowed on these trails during the winter months.
CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING AND SNOWSHOEING
Lodge guests can cross-country ski and/or snowshoe right out the back of the lodge. Or, guests can visit Lackawanna State Park to enjoy the great PA winter wonderland. This park is about twenty-minutes away.
There are many ponds and lakes in close proximity to The Herrick Lodge that are open to the public and provide great ice fishing for pickerel, trout, and even bass.
Obviously, lodge guests can literally leave their rooms and enter the winter action immediately!
