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 1930s. 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.


Appropriate Daily Use and Overnight Camping fees apply.

Propane grills and stoves and charcoal grills can still be used to prepare popular camping dishes and provide adequate warmth. These grills must have covers/lids and be within an arm’s length when lit.
