We did a lot of hiking on our second day camping at Cook Forest. First we hiked the Longfellow Trail out to Memorial Fountain built in 1950. The 300-400 year old trees are the best part and I felt so thankful to be there.
I loved that we could hike this trail right from our cabin and do a big loop back just in time for lunch.
Next we visited Beartown Rocks a short drive down the road at Clear Creek State Park. The boulders here are as big as houses and it is one of the largest rock outcroppings in PA.
The last thing we did was walk down to the Clarion River before settling in for the night. We found chesnuts ❤ which I have never even seen before.
We warmed up by a lovely campfire and sipped hot apple cider.
It rained the entire trip home but it was still a lot of fun seeing the beautiful fall foliage. We stopped at Hyner Run State Park to have lunch. I would have liked to do more hiking, but I was happy we arrived home early. 🙂
