We watched a red tail hawk dive into the creek and fly away with a large trout in its talons - an amazing sight to see. Outstanding start to walking path along Cedar Creek. A true gem hidden in the center of Lehigh Valley.

Interesting watching the fish swim and you can buy food pellets at the general store. They have picnic benches for snacking so bring a picnic basket. Also have a nice trail to walk along the creek where we saw kids swimming in the water.

Took the three grandkids to the hatchery and they were all fascinated by all the activity. The explanatory signs tell you exactly what is going on with all the fish. Everything nice and clean and well maintained.

I am sure you can buy bulk food at various stores locally to your area if the hatchery cannot. Also, look at koi pond websites, they have a multitude of options.

The hatchery is free, however if you want to feed the fish there is a cost for that :)
