We love coming to Jacobsburg for walks with our son and our dog. It is such a beautiful place and practically in our backyard!

Stopped here after the Martin Guitar Factory, as it is just a few minutes away.
There are several trails. The following are "mulit-use," i.e., hiking, biking, horseback, cross country skiing:
Jacobsburg, 3 miles
Homestead, 3.6 miles
Sobers Run Main Loop, 2.7 miles
Sobers Run Connect Trail, 1.4 miles
Sobers Run Explorer Trail, 1.7 miles
The hiking only trail is the Henrys Woods Trail, 1.9 miles
There is a free map available at the Center.
The hike was beautiful. And it was free. How can you go wrong? Highly recommended!

We were planning a trip in the area, and I was looking for a park to take a break to picnic, and found this place. When we got there, it was a great treat. We picnic lunched under a covered area, used watered collected from the rain, that was cool! We then stopped by the recently built conservation center, which is specific to educational training for school and such, so the facilities there were nice and clean, and with a map in hand we went to a neat trail that took us around 45 min, one of the shorter trails, and was treated with beautiful flora and streams. If I had a horse I would have loved to use these trails. It's quite extensive. There's trout fishing there as well. Thank goodness for state parks, especially in PA, my home state. They are clean and with no charge. Highly recommend. Look forward to returning to experience new trails.

Great place for a family hike or to walk the dog. Excellent place for snowshoeing or cross country skiing if the weather is right. The creek is a nice place to just relax.

Jacobsburg State Park is located off of route 33 Belfast Exit. From the South Turn right at the Stop sign and then a left where the road ends. The parking lot is on the left about half mile down the road. There are some lovely loop trails. Can walk along the Buskill river which is stocked fill Trout. When you exit the parking lot turn right follow the road straight until it comes to Sullivan Trail. Right on the corner is Fuel Cell. They have a small take out and little outdoor area where you can eat your food. It has great hamburgers, large portions and very reasonable prices! Great way to spend the afternoon. Oh and at the beginning of the trail there are two heated bathrooms that are cleaned daily!
