Snowy - The snow makes the rocks on the trail both a little hidden, and slippery, but it is still a beautiful time for this hike. History

Needs Overview

Description

Start your trip at Hopewell Lake Boat Launch parking lot, Group Tenting Areas 13-18, campground contact station, or Hopewell Furnace Visitor Center (using connector trails). Several portions are steep and rocky, so wear sturdy shoes.

The forests, lakes, wetlands, fields and trails are a destination for the people of southeast Pennsylvania to hike, fish, camp, and bike.

History & Background

Once an industrial complex for the fledgling United States of America, today French Creek State Park is an oasis for people and wildlife. Straddling the Schuylkill Highlands, the 7,730-acre park is the largest block of contiguous forest between Washington D.C. and New York City.
