According to the state park’s website, French Creek State Park has the “largest block of contiguous forest” between Manhattan and Washington, D.C. And it sure feels that way when you step onto the trail. Once you head into the woods on this trail, you leave everything behind. The park is 7,730 acres and offers any kind of activity an outdoors lover might want, from camping and picnicking to hiking and biking. The park is also designated both an Important Bird Area and an Important Mammal Area by the National Audubon Society.

Easy-to moderate hiking trails with a couple of steep climbing. Some great views - including vegetation. Would do this again.
