The Longfellow Trail in Cook Forest State Park, PA, is a great easy 1.4 mile one-way hike through an old growth forest called the Cathedral Forest.

This trail leads into parts of the Cathedral Forest with just evergreens and moss across the forest floor. Some trees grow over and on top of massive boulders, with roots reaching into the ground below.

This is just a very unique trail and one of the best hiking trails in Cook Forest State park.

Pets: Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out.

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups 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, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
