Eloping in the Pocono Mountains is an awesome way to share your love for adventure and nature while staying close to home. We love the locations below because they allow you to celebrate your love, in nature. While some spots are perfect for a hiking/adventurous elopement, other spots are a quick walk from the parking lot, and there are a lot of spots that are perfect for a mirco-wedding with your closest family and friends.
The Poconos have plenty of versatile scenery from mountains, to wildflower fields, to forest areas and there are so many perfect spots for an intimate elopement. We are going to share here 5 of our favorites, but pride ourselves on helping each couple find their perfect location. Many of our elopement locations are not well known spots, but instead areas the couple will be able to find time alone to enjoy this special occasion quietly.
1. Promise Ridge
Promise ridge is an incredible intimate wedding venue with the award winning celebrant Alisa Tongg. They specialize in micro-weddings and elopements at this venue overlooking the Pocono Mountains.
The venues top highlights are the living wall featured above, incredible overlook of the mountains, intimate reception dinner space, and open air dance floor.

We love the location of this trail not just for its natural beauty, but it's convenience. Within 10 minutes of the trail you can be back in town for a brewery stop or a visit to the apple pie bakery for their famous apple pie and a hot dog combo.
3. Hickory Run State Park
