About the Preserve:
Glen Run Nature Preserve was acquired in 2015 and offers 4 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails.
The nearly 200-acre preserve is located just south of Stroudsburg and the view from Godfrey Ridge provides an excellent view of the borough below. The ridge also marks a watershed divide: with the northern portion of the preserve located in the McMichael Creek watershed and the southern in the Cherry Creek watershed.
No hunting is allowed at Glen Run Nature Preserve.
The preserve is classified as special regulation waters with artificial lure catch and release only.
History of Churleigh Inn:
The foundation of the historic Churleigh Inn is located on this preserve, which also features a picturesque lake nestled among the ridges.
The life and death of the Inn's founder, Samuel Collins, is one of Stroudsburg's most intriguing and mysterious tales.
While many questions remain unanswered, a 2015 article from Pocono Record explores what we know about this piece of Stroudsburg history.
