Backpacking in Colonel Denning State Park

Steve and I prefer to backpack in the fall and winter, so that’s what we did this past weekend!
Along with the four of us, Steve’s college roommate and best man, Kevin, came along for our overnight excursion. Steve did some research on places we could go, provided us with a few options and we all decided to head to Colonel Denning State Park.


10/22/2011 - 10/23/2011
Location: Colonel Denning State Park, Pennsylvania
Lodging: Three-man tent along Warner Trail
Travelers: Steve, Christine, Kevin, Rocky & Nemo


The highlight of this park is the view of Cumberland Valley, which can be seen by climbing Flat Rock Trail to the overlook on the crest of Blue Mountain.  In addition to the view, the park has 18 miles of hiking trails and is a trailhead for the 105 mile Tuscarora Trail. The weather and temperature were typical for fall and in the evening, after setting up camp, we were able to sit close to the fire and sleep comfortably at night. We had an excellent time with a good friend in the great outdoors!
