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 (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!️
