Gouldsboro State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"You start this hike near the shore of Gouldsboro Lake; pick up the rocky Prospect Rock Trail that leads you first to Prospect Rock, an interesting rock outcrop; then it’s downhill to a swampy area. Once through the swamp you get on a decommissioned highway that leads to a park road that delivers you back to the lake.

Gouldsboro State Park lies adjacent to and just west of Tobyhanna State Park. The parks are more or less divided by a single north–south railroad line that was once part of the Erie-Lackawanna Railroad. The nearby town of Gouldsboro and the park are named after Jay Gould, a nineteenth-century American entrepreneur and railroad tycoon who once owned nearly 10 percent of all the rail lines in the United States,
including the Erie Railroad."
