Here at the summit of Big Pocono, 2131 feet elevation, spectacular views of the surrounding countryside can be seen. In this view, to the Southeast, one can see the famous Delaware Water Gap and the Kittatinny & Blue Mountain Ranges in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Facilities for picnicking and refreshments are provided at the summit.
