The 2,981-acre Yellow Creek State Park is in Indiana County along one of the first highways in the state, the Kittanning Path. This trail was used by the Delaware and Shawnee nations and by early settlers. Today, visitors enjoy the sand beach, picnicking and the educational programs. The 720-acre Yellow Creek Lake is a destination for boaters and anglers. The lake and park are an important rest stop for migrating birds. The park is named for Yellow and Little Yellow creeks, which create the lake. The creeks have lots of yellow clay in the banks and bottoms.
come here often with my children. Easy hiking with a few challenging elements but nothing a motivated kid can't overcome. Very photogenic area in any weather. It's a great rainy day trail. Highly recommend. Posted a few pics from last visit, check'im out.
