The Bottomlands Trail at Sizerville State Park in Emporium, Pennsylvania is an easy 1.3-mile out-and-back trail that runs along a beautiful creek named the East Branch Cowley Run.

This short, but scenic trail, runs from the middle of Sizerville State Park to the eastern side of the park. The trail runs along the East Branch Cowley Run for almost the entire hike, so hikers can sit and relax by the creek to make for a longer trip.

The trail follows yellow blazes and the path undulates as it winds along the creek; however, the trail is mostly flat despite these tiny ups and downs.

The trail will eventually cross one final bridge before reaching East Cowley Run Road, where the trail turns around and heads back.

Hikers can find parking at the coordinates provided. The lot is large enough to fit about six vehicles; however, the state park has additional parking just a stones-throw away.

Dogs are allowed on this trail if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Water Source
Hikers that carry water filters may use the creek to refill their water bottles. The state park likely also has fountains available at their facilities, though we did not check.

The new bridge on the Bottomlands Trail is up, and working. Hiked this trail Jan 30, 2020. Also, hiked on the Nady Hollow Trails. The Nady Hollow connector link trail isn't completed at the northern end. Some parts of the Nady Hollow are extremely steep, and hard to hike. Be careful with footing especially on the decent part.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
