BUSHKILL, PA – Encounter first-hand the natural beauty of the Pocono Mountains on a scenic trail ride at Fernwood Hotel and Resort. Fernwood's horseback riding mini getaway escape package includes a midweek hotel room and two horseback trail rides starting from $154 for two. Gina Bertucci, spokesperson for Fernwood, said, "Experiencing the beauty of the Pocono Mountains could not be better appreciated than on a trail ride that winds its way around our lush green property. The slowed pace allows you to relax and unwind while experiencing the slower pace of life from the saddle of a horse."

          Fernwood is a 440 acre four season resort located in the heart of the Pocono Mountains. In addition to horseback riding, it offers golf on an 18 hole par 71 course, indoor and outdoor pools, live entertainment, themed restaurants, a video game area, daily scheduled activities, trips to nearby points of interest including The Crossings Premium Outlets, Mt. Airy Casino, and Barley Creek Brewing Company, massage, a fitness center, bumper boats, hiking at Bushkill Falls, canoeing on the Delaware River, festivals at Shawnee Mountain and miniature golf. Bertucci said, "Whether you just want to sit by the pool, have dinner and see a show, canoe through the National Park, take a trail ride or shop, we have made it easy and affordable with our special packages."

          To reserve your horseback riding package, call the Fernwood Reservations staff at 888-FERNWOOD 337-6966 or go to for a complete selection of special packages. Fernwood is located on Route 209 in Bushkill, PA adjacent to the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Bertucci concludes, "With so much to do in the Pocono region and our close proximity to New York and New Jersey, summer is a the perfect time to plan a getaway. Golf a few rounds, attend a summer festival like the Pocono Chicken Wing Off, the PA State Craft Festival, the Garlic Fest or go shopping at one of the many antique stores. However you define relaxation, we have the perfect location and package to make it a reality. It's time for the Pocono Mountains."
