Hickory Run Forest Land and Homeowners Association is a private residential community located in Penn Forest Township, Carbon County, Pennsylvania. We are located north of the historic town of Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania.

As a private community there are specific rules and regulations on building, control of pets, operation of ATVs and other things that affect the quality of life for the association. Use of fireworks and discharge of firearms is strictly prohibited within the community. Please see Rules and Regulations under the "More" tab for a complete listing.

Yearly dues are payable starting in January and are handled by our management company, NEPA Management, Inc. located at 7164 Rt. 209, Stroudsburg, PA 18360. Their phone number is 570-421-5409, ex 329. Bills can also be paid on-line.


In an effort to clean up the association, we will be renting a dumpster again this year. We plan on having it delivered to the clubhouse on June 8, 2018 and picked up on June 18, 2018. If you see any trash throughout the association, or if you have some items that need to be disposed of, please place it in the dumpster. Let's all do our part to keep our association looking beautiful! 

If you see trash or debris, but cannot move it yourself, please notify the association via an e-mail or leave a message. Thanks!

Special Notice: 

Communities in Carbon County PA learned in 2016, that a major wind energy corporation has leased property from the Bethlehem Authority. The industrial wind corporation submitted a proposal to the Penn Forest Township Zoning Board to construct a wind turbine project comprising approximately 37 industrial wind turbines up to 525 ft high, with over a 300 ft spin range, along several ridges in Penn Forest Township. This forest is an important watershed since it provides drinking water for the city of Bethlehem.  It is also adjacent to several communities, including Towamensing Trails, Hickory Run Forest, and Beltzville Lake Estates. Hundreds of acres of forest will be cleared for this project, destroying the habitat for the area wildlife and fragmenting the extensive forest.  The negative impact on quality of life and property values is enormous.

May 7, 2018: The fight is not over! Please continue to support stopping these from being built in our pristine mountains!
