Cook Forest State Park A Pennsylvania Recreational Guide for Cook Forest EXPLORE PENNSYLVANIA WILDS Pennsylvania Wilds is two million acres of public lands for hiking, biking, fishing, boating, hunting and exploration in northcentral Pennsylvania. Within the twelve-county region are: 29 state parks, including Sinnemahoning; eight state forest districts (1.3 million acres); 50 state game lands, and Allegheny National Forest (500,000 acres). Highlights of the area are: elk watching, scenic PA 6, Pine Creek Gorge (PA Grand Canyon), the darkest skies in the east at Cherry Springs State Park, and hundreds of miles of trails, bike paths, and trout fishing streams. For the more adventurous, whitewater rafting through Pine Creek Gorge and hang-gliding at Hyner View State Park offer exciting challenges. Pennsylvania State Parks Mission The primary purpose of Pennsylvania state parks is to provide opportunities for enjoying healthful outdoor recreation and serve as outdoor classrooms for environmental education. In meeting these purposes, the conservation of the natural, scenic, aesthetic and historical values of parks should be given first consideration. Stewardship responsibilities should be carried out in a way that protects the natural outdoor experience for the enjoyment of current and future generations. visitPAparks Cover photograph by Anthony Cook Printed on recycled paper 2015 N or CLARION RIVER LANDS Thompson Eddy Canoe Camping Valley of th The 8,500-acre Cook Forest State Park and 3,136 acre Clarion River Lands lie in scenic northwestern Pennsylvania.

McC l ear ¼ 0 ¼ ½ ¾ 1 KILOMETER M ill c r e e k y Rd Mill Creek PA Fish & Boat Commission Boat Launch M ill c r e e Road k ¼ 0 One of John’s sons, Anthony, bought 36 acres from his father and then gained the rest of his acreage when his father died in 1858. Anthony erected three sawmills, one flouring mill, one planing mill, a boat scaffold, several dwellings, and a store. About 1870, he built the Cook Homestead, now known as the Inn at Cook Forest, at the corner of land where PA 36 and River Road intersect. Many of the large homes on River Road are still maintained by the Cook Family and descendants. After Anthony’s death, the business was managed under A. Cook Sons Company. John Cook was the first permanent American settler to the area. He arrived in 1826 to determine the feasibility of building an east to west canal along the Clarion River for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. John purchased 765 acres and settled here with his wife and 10 children in 1828. At the mouth of Toms Run, present day Cooksburg, John built his one-story cabin and the first of many water-driven sawmills. He worked his mills, logged with oxen, rafted logs to Pittsburgh, and also engaged in flatboat building through the years. OLD GROWTH TIMBER AREAS There are eleven old growth areas in the park, totaling over 2,300 acres. Most stands are dominated by ancient hemlock and white pine, but also contain ancient understory trees like white and chestnut oak, black cherry, red maple, and cucumber tree. Many white pine and hemlock trees in these areas approach 350 years old. Scientists believe these old growth areas began growing following a large forest fire in 1644. Some trees survived the fire and date back to the early 1500s. FOREST CATHEDRAL NATURAL AREA The Forest Cathedral Natural Area is home to the finest stand of tall white pine and hemlock in the entire Northeastern U.S. Many of these magnificent pine and hemlock trees exceed three feet in diameter with the tallest pines approaching 200 ft. It is fitting that this forest remains in the midst of the area that saw the greatest logging boom in the history of Pennsylvania. In the late 1800s, thousands of acres of old growth forests were cut for the shipbuilding and construction industries. The Forest Cathedral is a National Natural Landmark and has been set aside for protection as a state park natural area. ¼ ½ ¾ MILE Thirteen miles of the Clarion River flows through the park. The river corridor contains plants such as cardinal flower, rhododendron, mountain laurel, and many species of old growth trees. Possible wildlife sightings include deer, wild turkey, ruffed grouse, river otter, muskrat, porcupine, and black bear. Great blue heron, mergansers, kingfisher, and bald eagle are also common. The Clarion River is designated a National Wild and Scenic River for its scenic beauty, water quality, and archaeological significance. Sections of the river provide a glimpse into the past. The river was used as a transportation route and signs of settlements are located along the river banks. The most prevalent signs that can be seen are bracket dams and log landings from the logging era. The Cook Forest Association formed in the 1920s to save the few areas of surviving old growth timber. Endorsed by national natural resource groups and Governor Gifford Pinchot, the association raised $200,000, which helped the commonwealth purchase 6,055 acres from A. Cook Sons Company in 1927 for $640,000. Cook Forest became the first Pennsylvania state park acquired to preserve a natural area. It was later designated a National Natural Landmark. CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS Road. This camp with barracks, mess hall, and bathhouses served 200 enrollees and staff until it closed in 1937. The buildings were razed in 1937 and used to construct CCC Camp SP-6 at Raccoon Creek State Park in Beaver County. On March 31, 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt created the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The purpose of the CCC was to provide employment and restore our nation’s natural resources. In 1934, CCC Camp SP-2 was built in the present-day River Cabins Area along River Work of the CCC in Cook Forest still remains. Indian and River cabins were built, trails and roads constructed and forest resources preserved by these hard-working men. HISTORIC AREAS LOG CABIN ENVIRONMENTAL LEARNING CLASSROOM: This large log building was built in 1934 by the Civilian Conservation Corps. It was used as living quarters and then as a restaurant. The building is currently the environmental learning classroom with displays, taxidermy animals, and logging tools from early lumbering days. instrumental in raising additional funds needed to purchase the land from the A. Cook Sons Company. COOK FOREST FIRE TOWER/ SENECA POINT OVERLOOK: The 87.5-foot fire tower, built in 1929 by the commonwealth’s Department of Forest and Waters gave firefighters a 15-to 20-mile view of the area. The tower was retired from service in 1966. Periodically, the observation cabin on top of the tower is open during programs. Look for bowl shaped depressions in the stone, known as “Indian Mills.” They are believed to be made by predecessors of the Seneca Indians to grind seeds and grain. Cook Forest State Park is home to six known sites of American Indian significance. These sites contain petroglyphs and stone carvings. RIVER AND INDIAN CABINS: In the 1930s, the CCC constructed these buildings from salvaged American chestnut killed by blight. These buildings were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. MEMORIAL FOUNTAIN: Built in 1950 on Longfellow Trail, the fountain was dedicated to the original members of the Cook Forest Association who were COBBTOWN AND BRACKET DAMS: Stone and earthen foundations of bracket dams can be found along the banks of Toms Run. One set of remains can be observed upstream from the Swinging Bridge. Bracket dams created an artificial flood to raise the water level for floating logs to the Clarion River. Two and a half miles up Toms Run Road are the scant remains of Cobbtown, one of many temporary logging boomtowns of the area. This town was in operation from 1861 to the 1890s.
