This is excellent for young children, with amazing rock formations to keep their interest.
The park is open daily from April to October. During the closed winter season, the park notes that “foot travel to the boardwalk area is welcome, with parking available at the closed entrance gate.” As such, expect a slightly longer access hike.
This is a one-way, circular boardwalk trail that runs through the heart of the 100 acre Beartown State Park. The key aspect of the park is the unusual rock formations and huge boulders that were formed out of sandstone over time, and left behind thousands of pit marks and extremely deep and narrow crevices.
Make your way through these formations, sometimes with trees growing 30 feet above your head.
This is not a destination hike, but it's a great spot to see if you are in the area. It's only a 1/2 mile in length, but you can easily spend an inordinate amount of time in this one-of-a-kind scenery.
