Hiking  - GUERNSEY


Guernsey State Park has many scenic and historical trail hiking opportunities. Guernsey State Park was designed and built by the Civilian Conservation Corp in the 1930’s. Part of their original design for the Park was the establishment of scenic and challenging hiking trails. There are approximately 14 miles of established historic trails still available for hiking enthusiasts at the park.


  • Most of the hiking trails at Guernsey State Park are found on the west side of the reservoir.
  • A trail kiosk with a map of the trail system can be found at the trailhead located at the turn-off to the Brimmer Point Overlook.

Trails are open to the public year-around.


All trail user’s vehicles must have the appropriate SPHS&T daily use permit.
