The Beam Rocks Trail at Laurel Summit State Park in Somerset, Pennsylvania is an easy 1 mile out-and-back hike that leads from Laurel Summit Rd out to Beam Rocks. Beam Rocks gives you views of the Applachian Mountain Range in Pennsylvania, parts of Gallitzin State Forest, and the surrounding towns in the valley below. Beams Rocks is an awesome lookout point and is not very popular compared to the Wolf Rocks Trail down the road. The actual lookout point is a cliff, roughly 60 feet in height, with various cracks between the boulders, so watch your step while getting onto the rocks.

Rock climbing at Beam Rocks is allowed, but you must climb at your own risk with the proper equipment.

This trail is lightly trafficked and follows red blazes before reaching the lookout point; however, the trail continues down the mountain along the red blazes and reaches other trails in the area which lead into Forbes State Forest.

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. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We 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! ✌
