Pinchot State Forest
While hiking the Pinchot trails the remains of an apparent railroad grade can be seen in some locations. Following it where it can be seen, GPS data was collected to attempt to map the grade out. About 1.7 miles of this old grade was found. Although this grade heads towards the Watres Reservoir, it clearly did not connect to the Wilkes-Barre & Eastern Railroad. Looking for information the only reference to this railroad can be found in a book "The History and Railroads of North Pocono" Albert Lewis purchased acres of forest land and in 1882 he operated a narrow gauge logging railroad at Meadow Lake that extended north to Panther Creek in Spring Brook. Although a decent amount of the grade can be found near the hiking trails, the area around Meadow Lake has been developed and traces of this old railroad would have been erased. The railroad was apparently not named.
