I'm looking to get some pickup shots for my film (just myself with a video camera and a tripod) and I need a high shot from either a cliff or an area where I'd be able to see the view of the full mountain area (sort of like the level at Camel Beach Waterpark - there is a ski-lift that goes up a mountain).

Any hiking trails or roads or cliffs where I'd be able to set up a camera and tripod and not get flack for it? My friend runs a festival in the Pocono area and said that it would be fine to shoot and for something like that a permit is not needed.

Any roads or names of areas that I'd be able to shoot such shots would be appreciated. I am looking to film around Tannersville, East Stroudsburg and surrounding areas.

If in Effort, and going up the mountain toward Sierra View - you will see a road that leads up to The Birches. When you take that road to the top, you should be able to find a spot to photograph the entire mountainous valley.

I'd love to see you post whatever spectacular views you find!

How far is Effort from there? I'm not so sure with the area and am coming up to scout Poconos this weekend... I'm coming from New York City and will be coming up Delware Water Gap and into East Stroudsburg and Tannersville... Is there any road or high point of elevation where I'd be clear of trees and be able to get a nice long shot (I have a wide angle lens) and I wanted to get something in the clear if possible.

Also, what is the highest point in or around that area?

Go UP............head up above Camel back Mt. It is to the right of the ski area. Follow it up to the Pocono Mt State Park area. It takes fantastic shots.
I put a few on here a bit ago, maybe on the Brazil comes to America thread.
You might go into search up top of here and put Camelback pictures.....
So just that..........keep climbing.........the road doesn't stop just at the Camel Beach. There are picnic tables at the top, and some views from both sides. It is amazing...........especially on a clear day...You can drive up with your car, there is also some walking trails there.

Also, just so you know...........I've taken some good shots from on the picnic tables........just to get a bit higher. Full view all around......far, far and wide.
I'll have to check again, how far they said you can see.........Big Pocono State Park - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

That link should give you the height etc.........google Big Pocono State Park for more info.

Thanks Poconoproud.............
Just keep to the right of the ski lift area, to the right of the Camelbeach......
There is only one climbing up road. Only one...........
It will bring you to the top. There will be no trees in the way of your shots.
You will be above the tree line. That is what makes for some very great shots.
To the back side..........you can catch the view of a distant lake. I was never quite able to figure out which one I was looking at. Beltzville Lake??? To the front you will look down on the Chateau Resort.........out to many mountains, and even route 80 far in the distance.........Oh you should see it in the Fall!
Maybe I can find the few I took up there ............have to go check?? //www.city-data.com/forum/north...p-top-top.html
Ok well, I hope they allow me to do that, I donno?...........the" last pictures" were of the top of camelback. I had a purely horriable camera at the time, and I was in a rush.....so....mine are not all in the least bit great, but you'll get the idea.
