As a gateway to Cook Forest, (one of PA's most visited parks), and Clear Creek State Park, Brookville, in Jefferson County, is surrounded by some of the loveliest laurel fields in the state.
Cook Forest is classified as a National Natural Landmark by the National Park Service. The 7,182-acre Cook Forest State Park lies in scenic northwestern Pennsylvania. Once called "The Black Forest," the area is famous for its stands of old growth forest. The "Forest Cathedral" of towering white pines and hemlocks is a Natural National Landmark. The Clarion River is the eastern border of the Park, and is popular for canoeing and rafting.
