Cozy Poe Valley State Park is nestled in a rugged mountain valley in Centre County. Seemingly endless forests surround the 25-acre Poe Lake. The 620-acre state park is surrounded by the 198,000-acre Bald Eagle State Forest. Poe Paddy State Park is nearby.

LOVED our hike. Make sure to get yourself a map though!! There are some really detailed maps available for free. We did the Gum Trail which is beautiful although it has a STEEP incline for over half a mile taking you up to a road. There are a LOT of trails to choose from, make sure to plan ahead of time!
