Seven Tubs Recreation Area is a publicly accessible recreation area located in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, and owned by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Continuously flowing glacial meltwater gouged a line of smooth tubs in gritty sandstone over 12,000 years ago. The tubs are potholes formed by the flowing water. The site is part of a 537-acre (2.17 km2) recreation area in the Pennsylvania mountains about 4 miles (6.4 km) south of downtown Wilkes-Barre. The site is popular among hikers for its easy accessibility and beginner-level hiking environment.

  • Although I was only able to complete half of the trail due to the weather, this is an amazing trail. Very peaceful. Great for meditation. Loved all the trees surrounding the trail. The air was extremely crisp. The weather conditions today definitely made this trail advance vs. moderate on the All Trails app. Highly recommend wearing proper winter gear and a good stick to keep your balance. However, I wouldn’t recommend small dogs for this trail.
  • Great easy hike. Kids loved it, beautiful trails. Mild hiking. Had my 2 year old in a backpack. My 4 year did the whole thing herself no problem. Would recommend it to anyone!
