To get to this trail, follow PA 259 south from the park office. After taking a right turn at the stop sign, turn onto Hoffman Road - the second road to your right. This road ends at a small parking area where the Damsite Loop Trail begins. This trail can be hiked as an in and out or a loop. The in and out version of this hike would use strictly the eastern leg of the trail which is relatively easy. Adding the loop portion adds a little more difficulty as it winds slightly up and down a hill. The in and out version is kid/family friendly. This is a nice quiet out of the way place with picnic areas as well. Ridge Top Trail - Ridgetop Trail is a challenging 2 mile trail. It begins in the beach/day-use area and winds through a variety of habitats. Laurel Run Trail - The shorters of the three hiking trails, at Yellow Creek State Park, it is ideal to take children on. This trail is a 0.5 mile loop which starts at the Yellow Creek State Park office. This easy hike is especially beautiful in the spring when wildflowers abound.
