Wolf Rocks - Forbes State Forest
TRAIL DISTANCE - 4.5 miles
TYPE - Day Hike
The Wolf Rocks Trail is located in the Forbes State Forest, but the trailhead for this hike is at Laurel Summit State Park. This hike was on Jodi's birthday, and getting the whole family out there on the trail is always special! And we were greeted at the trailhead parking lot by chickens. That was a little different.
This was an early spring day, but clear, warm and sunny. We took the Wolf Rocks Trail Loop, which is a fairly straight and level hike to the overlook, and a slightly longer and hilly hike back. The views were really nice with almost no foliage at all on the trees yet, and we had the overlook all to ourselves so we took all the time we wanted for pictures.
The hike back to the trailhead was uneventful,
and continued the trend of having the trail to ourselves. This is a nice
short day hike with an overlook with views that are definitely worth the
trip. If you are looking for a fairly easy family hike, then this might
be a good hike for you.
