The 8,500-acre Cook Forest State Park lies in scenic northwestern Pennsylvania. Once called the Black Forest, the area is famous for its stands of old growth forest. Cook Forests Forest Cathedral of towering white pines and hemlocks is a National Natural Landmark. The Clarion River connects Clear Creek State Park to Cook Forest State Park along a scenic 10-mile stretch of river which is popular for canoeing and rafting.

Beautiful trail. Steep in sections. The trail blazes have faded and are very difficult to see. However, it is easy to see the trail without them. Once you intersect with other trails, the trails are well marked

Beautiful trail! Usually quiet and you will not run into many others on the trail. I've done this trail with young children and their grandfather. there are a few steep sections, but everyone enjoyed the hike

This trail was a nice little hike. The old growth pines were beautiful and strong and the trail itself was well maintained and marked. I did not care for the recent seats that were shabily cut into a few old fallen pines, to me it took a little away from the asthetics. For novice hiker I would rate this as an easy hike. For a beginner this is slightly moderate. Took about two hours with a dog leading the way and a baby on my wife and my back's.

Perfect hike for family my 4 year old got
A little tired but made it all the way

Beautiful hike on Longfellow and Ancient Forest trails, though there were a couple very large trees down across the trails. Wish each trail had its own separate entry on here since we didn't do Joyce or Rhododendron :)
