Flat Rock Trail is 2.5 miles long (one way) leading from Colonel Denning State Park to the top of Blue Mountain in Tuscarora State Forest. The trail head is at the footbridge next to the environmental classroom. This is a moderate to rugged hike climbing in elevation over 900 feet with rocks and loose gravel. At the top of the mountain, Flat Rock Trail joins the Tuscarora Trail to the overlook. Flat Rock Trail overlook is a natural rock outcrop that affords a 180-degree spectacular view of Cumberland Valley. Wear good hiking boots and bring snacks and a drink.
