Blowdown of 2017


Please meet at the Park Office for a challenging 425 vertical foot rise 2.4 mile hike to observe the impressive microburst damage of 2017 along the Joyce Kilmer Trail. This is the storm that toppled the renowned Longfellow & Seneca Pines. Although we hate to see these massive and ancient trees come down, leaving these hulking trees in place is a vital part of old growth forest regeneration.


* Until further notice - Due to COVID-19 restrictions all park programs are limited to 25 participants, mask must be on person, social distancing in effect.  All participants must register at the Park Office at (814)744-8407 or cookforestsp@pa.gov.
