Activities

Hiking

The park is a great place for a hike! See the Trails page for more information.

Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing

Elk Knob State Park allows many activities not offered at other State Parks including cross country skiing and snowshoeing. We strive to keep the park open in extreme winter conditions when many other parks are forced to close. This allows for unprecedented State Park access during some of the most extreme winter conditions. While we welcome cross country skiing and snowshoeing, snow boarding is not allowed at Elk Knob State Park.

Picnicking

A small picnic area is available. There are 11 picnic sites with grills and tables. Two of the sites are handicapped accessible.
