Itinerary:

Upon arrival at the convenient Manhattan departure point, you will be greeted by your tour guide for the day and you will sign the required liability waivers. After departure, a light breakfast will be served on board the coach.

On the first stop, you will experience the second most powerful waterfall on the east coast - the 77-foot Great Falls of the Passaic River. Second to only Niagara Falls, this waterfall was the base for the first major water power system in the United States and is located in a National Historic District.

Then the tour heads to the foothills of the Pocono Mountains where you'll visit one of the largest and oldest working dude ranches in the United States. At the ranch, you can enjoy numerous activities. The main activity is, of course, horseback riding. You will have the opportunity of no less than 2 trail rides, one before lunch and one after lunch. The trail ride is led by an experienced rider who will see to your safety and point out some of the interesting nature along the way. The trails will lead you through pristine woods and meadows and wildlife viewing is very likely as well. This trail ride is both for experienced and inexperienced riders.

Departure from the ranch in late afternoon makes the return to Manhattan at approximately 7:00 pm.
