Warriors Path State Park is located in Liberty Township, Pennsylvania off of Raystown Road. There are two roads accessible by car to get into the park: Stapleton Farm Road and Clark Road. Warriors Path is partially surrounded by the Raystown Branch Juniata River making the grounds luscious and green.
Warriors Path State Park is about 349 acres and has achieved such status because of the proximity of a famous path used by the Iroquois American Indians during raids with the Cherokees. The park is not open year round however when it is, you and your pup can enjoy all of nature’s offerings between mid-April through the end of October.
This state park is home to winding, wooded trails through wetlands and dry areas. However, there’s a catch to bringing a dog to Warriors Path State Park. Hunting is permitted here, so it is best to keep your dog leashed at all times. It may also be wise to outfit your dog with an orange vest or something that makes them highly visible to hunters in the area.
Unless your dog is eager to go along on a hunting adventure, Warriors Path State Park may not be for you. Also, consider going during the off-season to have a bit more peace without the hunters. If you prefer taking your pup on a fishing excursion, this park may be beautiful to set up shop by one of the ponds to fish for smallmouth, rock bass, carp, eel, catfish, walleye, and more.
Some have even been known to go camping here since there is a campsite available. If you bring Fido along for the fun, bathrooms and a picnic area are convenient to have your space away from the trails and ponds. While no official dog rules are available, please keep your dog on a leash and pick up after him as needed. Overall Warriors Path State Park is an outdoor fanatic’s dream.
