Places to Stay Near to Pymatuning State Park
The Best Hiking Trails in Pymatuning State Park
From more challenging uphill sloping trails to gentle and short paths bringing you close to nature, there's plenty to choose from at Pymatuning.
1. Pet Connector Trail
This quick trek, only a quarter of a mile long, is a great little hiking intro for anyone in the family before embarking on longer hikes.
2. Beaver Dam Trail
Splitting off the Tamarack Trail, this half-mile route is a treat for bird watchers. Appreciate birds in their natural habitat at the Waterfowl Observation Deck, and watch for basking turtles.
3. Sugar Run Trail
Only a mile long, this route is one of the park's more challenging hikes due to its elevation among sandstone rocks. There's plenty to admire on the way, from geological formations to the adjacent rapids.
4. Spillway Trail
Two and a half miles from beginning to end, this trail used to be a railroad bed, and the long path also suits cycling.
The Best Family Activities in Pymatuning State Park
Come rain or shine, winter or summer, there's plenty to come back to in Pymatuning State Park, with cabins giving you a comfortable base to return to after an active day of woodland adventuring.
There are three public beaches at this huge park: the Main Beach, Beach Two, and Linesville. Cool off in the summer with a swim or sunbathe on the shore.
2. Disc golfing
This fun sport can be played on the 18-hole course at the Jamestown Day Use Area. It's easier on beginners than traditional golf, as you throw a disc rather than putting a ball. Pick up some score cards from the office and challenge your buddies and family to a few games.
3. Winter sports
Go sledding on the slopes at the dam or zoom through the open areas of the park with cross-country skiing. These exciting activities among the beautiful surroundings of Pymatuning make a visit in winter well worth it.
4. Grill and picnic
There are grilling stations and picnic tables available at Jamestown and Linesville in the park. If you're bringing a large group or looking to come to the park for a reunion or other special event, rent a picnic pavilion and make a day of it.
