  • One of my favorite places to hike. Not difficult trails, just very nice. Family friendly. Boulder field is also on these premises, with road access.
  • I love this place ! Used to go here as kids. Picnic s. Camping. Hiking swimming is awesome. Best place ever. !! Boulder field is phenomenal!!
  • Great hike! Be sure to stop by the waterfall and watch people jump into way too shallow water.
  • This is one of the best state parks in PA. It has fishing, hiking, swimming and many other activities. Great natural areas including Boulder Field and Hawk Falls. Great for day trips.
  • Amazing place to take family and friends. There is no elevation gain on the rocks so it is fairly easy to navigate. Just make sure to wear boots with ankle support. I had to boulder field to myself when I went on a weekday and was able to get some nice pictures. Also please don't try and dig up the stones. There are spots that look like wells because ppl tried digging to the bottom of the boulder field .
