Joyce Kilmer Trail is a very 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 trail starts on Cemetery Road and ends on Indian Trail. Virtually the entire length of this trail runs through old growth forest. Take note of the rock formations and large eastern hemlocks and American beech, some of which span 3-5 ft. across." There is camping available in Cook Forest State Park.
