Blue Knob State Park

Blue Knob State Park offers year-round wilderness adventures on 6,128 acres of woodland. The park is in the northwestern tip of Bedford County, west of I-99. Altoona, Johnstown and Bedford are within 25 miles of this scenic park. The elevation of the park can cause air temperatures to be several degrees cooler than the surrounding cities. The annual snowfall averages about 12 feet. One of the unique features of the park is the solitude it provides the visitor. There are many opportunities to enjoy the quiet and refreshing serenity of the mountains and streams.

I had a blast of a time hiking with the Ranger. Very knowledgeable and kind. Enjoyed the group of people that also was a part of the hike.

Our cub scouts really enjoyed the tree walk! Our Cub Master even quizzed them the next week at our Day Camp by getting leaves from around camp!
