Nice trail with full tree coverage. We didn’t make it all the way to the top at greenwood tower due to incoming rain. This is 1000+ ft of elevation change, so be ready. Would hike again.

This is most likely the most educating state park in PA's system. A full schedule of educational and informative programs throughout the year, fun for all ages. A great beach and picnic area and pavillions to rent for special occasions. There are many trails to choose from, for the novice to the thru-hiker. Hikes from around the lake to spurs that connect to the Mid State Trail, (over 200 miles), or the Standing Stone Trail, (just over 70 miles). Camping is available for primitive or small campers or do as my wife and I did, Backpack to the Mid State trail, via the Fire Tower trail and camp out in Rothrock State Forest. The lake is stocked with trout throughout the year but let me give a word of advice. The feeder stream is some of the best native trout fishing in all of PA and for some reason not many people know it!
