This easy hike provides a tour of popular Black Moshannon State Park. It starts on the bridge across Black Moshannon Lake and continues along the lakeside and past the dam spillway; it then follows Black Moshannon Creek as it meanders through the forest at the north end of the park. The trail leaves the stream and loops back to the bridge across the lake. Here you cross the lake a second time and head toward the south end of the park, where you can explore the bog and its wildlife and exotic flora from an elevated boardwalk.
