Hyner View State Park



Bald Eagle State Forest- Bald Eagle State Forest District lies in the beautiful ridge and valley section of the State. The many streams within the area have their origin in the forested ridges and flow in several directions eventually emptying into the Susquehanna River. Over one-third of the Bald Eagle State Forest is in public watershed, making the proper management of this land very essential.
Bucktail State Park- Hemmed in by mountains, this state park scenic drive follows PA Route 120 as it winds from Lock Haven to Emporium along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River and the Sinnemahoning Creek. The scenic drive has no recreational facilities. In June, the mountain laurel is in bloom and in early October the fall colors are breathtaking.
Hyner Run State Park- The terrain of the park is generally level and occupies the small valley created by Hyner Run, with steep mountains on both sides. The park derives its name from Hyner Run, which flows through the park. The park is entirely surrounded by Sproul State Forest.
Kettle Creek State Park- Kettle Creek State Park consists of 1,793 acres along Kettle Creek in western Clinton County. The park is in a valley surrounded by mountainous terrain and wilderness. Many of the existing recreational facilities arose from a joint flood control project developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the former Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources.
Little Pine State Park- Little Pine State Park is located in one of the most beautiful sections of the Tiadaghton State Forest in the Appalachian Mountains. A special attraction of the park is the trail system. For seasoned hikers, Spikebush Hollow Trail with its beautiful picturesque vistas, outcroppings of rock and varieties of trees and plants is an enjoyable challenge.
Ole Bull State Park- The park area is referred to as the Black Forest of Pennsylvania. Its dense tree cover and mountainous terrain attracts thousands of campers who bask in the serenity of the forested scenery along Kettle Creek.
Sproul State Forest- In 1898, the first purchase of State Forest Land occurred near Bull Run on Young Woman's Creek. The location is marked with a suitable monument. Since then the Sproul State Forest has grown to 290,000 acres.
Upper Pine Bottom State Park- Surrounded by the huge Tiadaghton State Forest, Upper Pine Bottom State Park has provided thousands of visitors with a welcome rest area. Visitors often use the parking area of this small roadside picnic site for access to hiking, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and hunting on pristine forestland.

Hyner View State Park
Description - The focal point of Hyner View State Park is the overlook wall, constructed in the 1930's by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). In 1949, the present park access road was built providing better access to the view. With the opening of this road the Flaming Foliage Festival, a local tourist promotion project, was first held at the view. This festival has since outgrown the view and has been moved to the foot of the mountain.
Hang gliding and picnicking are the two most popular attractions to Hyner View State Park. Hunting is prohibited within the state park, however, thousands of acres of nearby public land provide excellent small and big game hunting, trapping and dog training.

Other public lands in the area include: Bucktail, Sproul, Bald Eagle, Kettle Creek, Little Pine, Hyner Run and Ole Bull.
