Just made a quick stop on my way back to Pittsburgh. It was a Saturday and surprisingly not that busy. Was able to check out a few trails. Came across a small waterfall and everything was peaceful and serene around here. There's a rocky creek that runs along the main road. I found a bridge on my way back to the car, and it's a real nice place to stop and sit and just think about things for a while. I wish I knew how to do that.

Very nice State Park. A little more signage to get to the beginning of trails would be helpful. Trails are pleasant to use. Popular area.

Love the whole camp. Visit it numerous times every year . Sometime to stay overnight, other times just a day trip. Very restful. Getting ready for a winter trip there this afternoon!

Linn Run turned out to be a wonderful surprise for us. We stayed in Cabin 1. It was clean, well cared for, and absolutely gorgeous. The bubbling creek was just steps from our door. And the park itself is lovely.

Our favorite go to for a quick scenic hike. Beautiful waterfalls and wild streams make for amazing scenery. Amazingly this area was a clearcut wasteland 100 years ago! Some cool RR paths to follow. Endless mountain biking! Wolf Rocks and Beam Rocks are must see hikes. Plenty of room to explore. The nearby Forbes State Forest has some great backpacking and the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail has two Adirondack Shelter sites that make for a nice overnight backpack trip for Pittsburgher's on a tight schedule.
The forest roads are easily ridden on a mountain bike. A little to rough for a road bike though!! My Chevy Impala gets around 90% of the roads 90% of the year so it's easy to venture off into the wilderness for a quick get away.
There can be logging traffic and recent storms have washed out Fish Run trail and Laurel Run Road. Making access a little tough, but it also has kept the park very quiet lately!!
Wear good boots, this is a very rocky area!
