DescriptionCook Forest State Park is 1 mile north off SR 36. The park comprises some 7,182 acres of scenic drives and hiking trails set against the backdrop of the winding Clarion River. Once known as the “Black Forest,” the area is famous for its stands of old growth forest and its abundance of deer. Canoeing and tubing are popular, as are camping, horseback riding, waterslides and winter sports. Mountain streams and reservoirs in the vicinity offer good trout fishing.
