Geology of Oil Creek

Lace up your hiking boots and join the park naturalist on a hike through some of Oil Creek State Park’s most interesting geologic features. We’ll cover approximately 1 mile of steep, rocky terrain as we learn about the formation and geologic history of the Oil Creek Valley. This trail is difficult and can be wet or slick in the spring. Please wear appropriate footwear and dress for the weather. You may want to bring hiking poles if you use them.

The parking lot will be on the right before the train tracks. To reach Wildcat Hollow from Titusville, take Rt. 8 to Petroleum Center Road and continue to the stop sign. Turn right, then immediately left. The parking lot will be on the left after crossing the train tracks. Contact 814.676.5915 for further direction if needed.
