I've been coming here for 25 years and the Buck trail is always a wonderful place to be. Very little traffic and pretty good hills and variety along the path. Beautiful serpentine rock areas to see.

The park has been infested by a pine-bark beetle which has killed hundreds of trees. The park is in the process of logging the dead trees to contain the spread of the beetle. Due to the ongoing logging, the the Doe Trail is closed until around August. Only trails near McPherson Lake are open.

Nicely kept trails, did get lost a few times with the firebreak paths. Definitely will go back to picnic in the near future.

Nice forest trails with varying degrees of steepness. Not much in the way of unique landmarks other than he feldspar quarry but still a great way to escape into nature for a couple hours.

We had a great time walking around the trails with our dog. It was nice that she didn't have to be on a leash. This was my wife's first time hiking and she did pretty good.

Loved this park, I connected multiple trails to make a loop. No crowds at all. I saw tons of wildlife while hiking the trails.

Gets the heart rate up for some fast walking. Very uneven though, ruts and loose gravel make it not great for a high powered fitness walk. But is nice for an fast calorie burning walk.

I took the trail from west to east, starting in the forested section. Shortly in there is a steep climb and there is a lot of up and down along this trail. Most of the trail is gravel or exposed bedrock but in some places I was glad to have my boots and not just sneakers. Not much shade even in the forested section, so don't forget your hat.

Great park, large well kept serpentine barrens, like going to a different state, completely different from the rest of PA. The trails in the barrens have ZERO shade so I recommend spring and fall. Rolling hills, grasses and a few trees. if you are not familiar I would read up a little one this unique ecosystem before you go, you will appreciate it more.

been here several times to train my dogs for Sar activities. Nice, be carefully in hunting season. I still can't find the horse trails. Picked up alot of ticks in the summer. Nice never seen it crowded. Great place for geocaching.
hope you enjoy, maybe well see you there, if you do you could hide and let my dogs track you down. haha
