Description

Located in the beautiful upper reaches of the renowned Pennsylvania Wilds, Denton Hill State Park is situated on the northern slope of Denton Hill. Due to being located on such a steep grade, this park ended up housing a full ski facility when it was built in the 1950s. During the warmer months, Denton Hill State Park houses several miles of hiking trails. 

These trails connect directly to the Susquehannock State Forest's Billy Lewis Area Trail System, which is an additional 85 miles. This means that you can use Denton Hill as a starting point for cross-state hiking trips. The mountainous trails provided here tend to be fairly challenging due to the steep grade of the hillside, so make sure to wear sturdy footwear if you're going to attempt a hike. 

Canines are allowed on these trails, provided you keep them on their leashes at all times. The Denton Hill State Park is somewhat remote, so make sure to bring baggies to clean up after any messes your canine might leave behind. Fishing is available here for you as well, provided you bring your equipment to go fishing with. 

While only one coldwater stream exists for the sport, it tends to be regularly full of fish. Fishing licenses are required before you can start your adventure, so make sure to get one from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission's office or website. Canines are allowed on the banks of these streams, provided they stay on a leash at all times. 

If you are more into hunting, roughly 650 acres of Denton Hill State Park is dedicated to hunting, trapping, and dog training. These areas commonly see black bears, woodchucks, turkeys, and white-tailed deer. All visitors engaging in hunting must hold a certificate in gun safety from the state of Pennsylvania. Canines are allowed to accompany you on hunting trips, provided they stay restrained throughout your visit.
