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.

First hike with the kids, ages 4 and 7, and we made it all the way to the top!

Great trail! Continue past Old Orchard Road to parking at the terminus of Old Shippensburg Road. About 3/4 mile past Old Orchard Rd.

Nice trail, well marked. We parked at the museum. The App trail north is right there behind the building. The App trail south, though, is down the street. From the museum, walk down the road, past the store, past the mansion, keep walking. it's there up the road on the right, but there is no parking at the point where the trail meets the road. Took the white trail up to the blue. Left hand turn up to Sunset Rocks. Followed the blue trail across the top of the range (some rock climbing involved), across a road, finally connects back up to the white about 4 miles from the spot we parked. Right turn onto the white trail, past the lean to, and past the halfway marker for the App trail. Good hike. Was almost 8 full miles as confirmed by 2 trackers.

Last time we hiked to the top... it started snowing and was absolutely amazing! Awesome trail for year round fun

Great trail. Stayed on the Appalachian trail at the shelter. Left with kids as young as 9/10, don't go any younger due to the rock climbing..all had a good time!

This trail has 2 options for going up/down - steep and less steep. A few wooden benches at the level areas and awesome view!
