Steeped in natural and historical features, the 696-acre Pine Grove Furnace State Park is in a beautiful mountain setting in southern Cumberland County. Surrounded by Michaux State Forest, Pine Grove Furnace features two lakes, 25-acre Laurel Lake and 1.7-acre Fuller Lake, a historic area and the Appalachian Trail.
Great mini hike. If you're looking for something that won't take all day with a beautiful view, this hike is perfect. We were out for about an hour and a half. A little steep in some spots but they have an option to take a less steep path. Would definitely do again.
loved this hike! blazes were well marked and hiking along the Appalachian Trail is always fun! really cool to see the exact halfway point of the Trail, as well. very steep at the beginning, then levels off, balancing it out to a moderate hike. take Old Shippensburg Rd all the way to its end to get to the trailhead. my dog was ok navigating through the rocks at the top.
