This year, we’re celebrating the 125th anniversary of Pennsylvania’s state parks and forests. The Laurel Highlands is home to eight state parks encompassing more than 63 square miles in the four-county region. One of the largest is the 13,625-acre Laurel Ridge State Park. The Conservancy established Laurel Ridge State Park in the 1960s with the primary purpose of creating the 70.5-mile Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail. For winter outdoor enthusiasts, this state park offers more than 20 miles of cross-country skiing trails. Download this month’s desktop calendar featuring Laurel Ridge State Park.
