Longfellow Trail is an easy hiking trail 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 "about 60,000 people hike this trail each year. Many of the trees have been standing for well over 300 years, and some of the hemlocks are over 400 years old. This trail starts at the Log Cabin Inn Environmental Learning Center, passes the Memorial Fountain, goes through a large wind damaged area, then emerges into some of the tallest and largest eastern white pine in the Northeastern United States, within the Forest Cathedral, and terminates at Forest Road. One white pine is the tallest in the Northeastern United States at 183 ft. Many of the pines reach 150 ft. in height. The Forest Cathedral Natural Area has been designated as a registered National Natural Landmark through the National Park Service." There is camping available in Cook Forest State Park.
