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.

Wasn't the best marked trail and was really steep, but the view was beautiful and it was a lot of fun.

We do this all the time. It's challenging but my fat doxie can do it. So that's saying something.

This was a rocky, uphill climb with a rewarding view at the top.

Excellent hike in my opinion...if you go in the direction of sunset rocks from the beginning, most will find it challenging because of the steep incline & once you get to the top you have yet another challenge of climbing around/over boulders... lots to see, the halfway point on the AT... also seen a couple deer & a turkey..and despite all the reviews of timber rattlesnakes.. I didn't see any..

I do this trail once every season. But, this is not one for easy-winded folks. It is steep.

Great scenic overlooks, offers steep trail and a longer zigzag trail, able to do some bouldering! So much fun!!

I've did this hike many times now..even camped along the way last year..Awesome view at the top!
