Browns Run Trail is an easy hike in Cook Forest State Park near Erie, Pennsylvania. This trail is kid friendly and dog friendly, but your furry kids have to be on leash. The park says "this lightly traveled trail starts at Toms Run Road and ends on Forest Road. The northern end of Browns Run Trail is intersected by Deer Meadow and Bridle trails. Hikers sometimes see black bear, white-tailed deer, squirrel and wild turkey. This is a great trail for wilderness hiking, hunting and birding, and is one of the best trails to listen for thrushes at dusk." There is camping available in Cook Forest State Park.
