The Upper Paradise Preserve provides crucial protection for Cranberry Creek and its headwaters, and it’s a place for you to explore the outdoors. The Pocono Heritage Land Trust manages this 511-acre property, which is a popular spot for hiking and fishing. The preserve encompasses iconic Pocono Mountains scenery like crystal clear waterfalls, rhododendron thickets, and serene forests.
Bring your fishing rod, because Cranberry Creek is a great spot to cast a line. The area is a designated High-Quality Coldwater Fishery and Class A Wild Trout Fishery.

The step waterfalls, braided creek, hemlock ravines, rhododendron stands, and open woodland are the best of the “Old Poconos” – a legacy to be preserved for generations to come.
