Cook Forest is classified as a National Natural Landmark by the National Park Service.
The 7,182-acre Cook Forest State Park lies in scenic northwestern Pennsylvania. Once called "The Black Forest," the area is famous for its stands of old growth forest. The "Forest Cathedral" of towering white pines and hemlocks is a Natural National Landmark. The Clarion River is the eastern border of the Park, and is popular for canoeing and rafting.
If you've never visited beautiful Western Pennsylvania, you're missing out on a wonderful experience! People from all over the world travel to Cook Forest, which is near the Allegheny National Forest, to experience breathtaking nature scenery, catch glimpses of the wildlife, hunt and fish, float down the river on canoes, cross-country ski, and spend time with friends and family.
State Park Adventures
Bordered by the beautiful Clarion River, the Cook Forest State Park is known for virgin white pine and hemlock timber stands. It's also known for its excellent fishing streams and ponds, plus hundreds of miles of hiking trails that wind their way through the forest, including the Baker trail, which runs from Pittsburgh to the Allegheny National Forest, and the Rachel Carson trail.
