Thornhurst offers many community and outdoor activities for people of all ages to enjoy!
Thornhurst Riverfront Park
Thornhurst Township has purchased land on River Road near the Luzerne County line with the intent to offer the only public access to the Upper Lehigh River. To date, the Park Committee has reviewed a physical assessment of the site and a preliminary identification of the wet lands. Based on a survey of residents for possible recreational interests, progress continues on the Master Plan. Public meeting notices on this topic are published in The Villager. Meetings are held in the Township Building when there is progress to report or decisions to be made.
Lackawanna State Forest & Pennsylvania State Game Lands
Pinchot Trail and Big Pine Hill. Snowmobiling, hiking, backpacking, camping, and hunting.
The Pinchot Trail is a 23 mile loop-type footpath in the Lackawanna State Forest, Thornhurst. Backpack campers and hikers will find this trail on the Pocono Plateau challenging, exciting and beautiful. It offers everything from a scenic overlook of expansive forests, a path sheltered by hemlocks next to a gurgling creek, to bog areas which contain some plants not common to Pennsylvania.
Thornhurst Country Club Estates Golf Course
Open to the public, Thornhurst County Club Estates offers a 9-hole golf course.
