The rolling terrain of Jacobsburg Environmental Education Center is on the northern edge of the Lehigh Valley near the foothills of the Kittatinny Ridge. Habitats range from fields in various stages of successional growth to mature forests dominated by oak trees.
Approximately 2.5 miles of the beautiful Bushkill Creek and its tributary, Sobers Run, wind through the park property.

Jacobsburg State Park is a park located in in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania near Bethlehem and Easton Pennsylvania. It consists of a little over 1100 acres, the park has many trails most of which are multi use for horses, bicycles and for walking. There is one trail that is dedicated to hiking only, the photographs here are taking along that trail that follows the Bushkill Creek.
We started hiking the Henry’s Woods Trail, 1.9 miles long, from the parking area B6. The trail starts steep and rocky after a short distance it levels out and is an easy hike. The trail leads to the historic area and returns to the to the parking area.
The Henry’s Woods section of the park is a largely virgin forest.
The Jacobsburg National Historic District
The Jacobsburg National Historic District lies within the park and gives visitors insight into a colonial gun manufacturer. The Henry Rifle was once made here.
