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.
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.
