Our visit was short, but we do plan to return when in the area. So much history to explore and so many trails to hike.

I grew up in this area and have gone to Jacobsburg hundreds of times. I love walking the trails especially the ones next to the stream. There are historical buildings that you can tour also. I just love to walk there.

Yes, I personally saw several persons fishing here and there. And that stretch of the Bushkill appears to have some great spots for fishing.
