Bucktail State Park Natural Area

This 16,433-acre natural area is actually a 75-mile scenic drive. The park provides a beautiful scenic drive along PA 120 from Emporium, through Renovo to Lock Haven. All along the road are unspoiled forest lands, beautiful hills and deep valleys.

Four major hiking and backpacking treks include Quehanna, Bucktail Path, Donut Hole and Chuck Keiper trails.

In the fall, the colors are breathtaking and people drive many miles to attend the Flaming Foliage Festival at Renovo in October. In the spring, mountain laurel and the fresh green foliage are worth the trip. Watch for Pennsylvania Elk!
