Notes

Swamp Oak Trail is a very easy hiking trail in Bald Eagle State Park near State College, Pennsylvania. This trail is kid friendly and dog friendly, however your furry kids must on leash. The park says "this trail can be accessed from the amphitheater in the Modern Campground or from the top of skyline ridge, which has a sweeping view of Foster J. Sayers Lake. Near the amphitheater by the trail is the largest and possibly oldest tree in the park. This swamp oak is in photos from before the park. The trail also passes a line of old, large oak trees. A portion of the trail follows the old farm road to what was the Day Farm." There is camping available in Bald Eagle State Park.
