Bucktail State Park Natural Area- Hiking in PA

Bucktail State Park Natural Area

Pennsylvania is almost entirely covered by mountains and forest, and hiking in PA is always an adventure. The Appalachian Mountains, comprised of the Allegheny and Pocano ranges, cut through the center of the state. The 2,184-mile-long Appalachian National Scenic Trail, generally known as the Appalachian Trail, extends between Springer Mountain in Georgia and Mount Katahdin in Maine, passes through this area.
