Beautiful hike on Longfellow and Ancient Forest trails, though there were a couple very large trees down across the trails. Wish each trail had its own separate entry on here since we didn't do Joyce or Rhododendron :)

Beautiful shaded trails through the woods. There is a beautiful swinging bridge off of Rhododendron Trail. I also love starting at the Environmental Learning Center and taking Longfellow Trail. This is a bit longer hike but you get to see an old well & some trees 300+ years old! They call this area the Forest Cathedral, and it is grand!

Beautiful train. We hiked along the Longfellow trail, switched to the Ancient Forest trail and then took the Tom's Run trail back to the car. We had 6 kids from 4-10 years old with us. They hiked without complaint.

We hiked this trail along with a few neighboring trails along the way to make a 3 mile loop back to where we parked on Forest Road. Many great things to see along the way! Another great trail in Cook Forest State Park! Would greatly recommend!

An interesting series of trails but we had a lot of trouble finding our way. There seemed to be done unofficial created paths that kept causing us confusion. But a lovely walk in a PA old forest.
