The Lake Trail at Raccoon Creek State Park in Hookstown, Pennsylvania is an easy 2.7 mile out-and-back hike that leads to Racoon Creek's Main Lake from the park's office on route 18. The trail is pretty wide, mostly flat, and dogs and biking are both allowed. After parking at the park office, walk north on route 18 and cross the bridge over Traverse Creek. The trailhead can be found just after the bridge on the right-hand side of the road.

After you hike about 1.3 miles, you'll reach the end of the trail where can connect with the Forest Trail; however, the Lake Trail does not continue on the Raccoon Creek Lake any further from this point.

The trail runs along Traverse Creek for the entirety of the hike, so you can use that creek as a water source if you have a water filter.

Views: There are a couple of small view points along the lake near the end of the trail.

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! ✌
