“The woods are lovely, dark and deep
But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”
~ Four Time Pulitzer Prize Winner

on a Snowy Evening”
A mid-March snowfall blankets the trail with late winter beauty in Henry’s Woods at Jacobsburg State Park, which spans between Wind Gap and Nazareth, Pennsylvania.
Henry’s Woods offers very scenic hikes and the rest of the center grounds have multi-use trails.
Jacobsburg State Park offers environmental education programs from the preschool environmental awareness programs to high school level environmental problem solving programs, historical programs, teacher workshops and public interpretive programs.
The park surrounds the Bushkill Creek.
The original land for the center was purchased by the Department of Forests and Waters from the City of Easton in 1959. In 1969, additional land was purchased using funds from Project 70. This brought the total land area of the center to its present size of 1,168 acres.
