Hyner View State Park
This small park features one of the nicest overlooks in the Pennsylvania Bureau of State Parks and is popular for hang gliding. Hyner Run State Park is nearby.
Seasons and Hours: The park is open every day of the year, sunrise to sunset. Day use areas close at dusk. Contact the Hyner Run State Park office for facility seasons and hours.
Scenic View: Hyner View State Park features a scenic vista overlooking the West Branch of the Susquehanna River and is a favorite spot for hang gliding. This is one of the nicest scenic vistas in Pennsylvania state parks. You can see for miles upstream and downstream over the West Branch of the Susquehanna River and surrounding mountains.
Picnicking: This small, partially shaded picnic area has picnic tables and a limited number of cooking grills. A non-flush toilet is available.
Hang Gliding: Hang gliding is a very popular activity at the park. Hang gliders take off from the scenic vista and sail out over the West Branch of the Susquehanna River.
Hunting and Firearms: Although hunting is prohibited within the state park, thousands of acres of public land provide excellent small and big game hunting, trapping and dog training.
Hunting woodchucks, also known as groundhogs, is prohibited. Dog training is only permitted from the day following Labor Day through March 31 in designated hunting areas. The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Pennsylvania Game Commission rules and regulations apply. Contact the park office for ADA accessible hunting information.
Use extreme caution with firearms at all times. Other visitors use the park during hunting seasons. Firearms and archery equipment used for hunting may be uncased and ready for use only in authorized hunting areas during hunting seasons. In areas not open to hunting or during non-hunting seasons, firearms and archery equipment shall be kept in the owner's car, trailer or leased campsite. Exceptions include: law enforcement officers and individuals with a valid Pennsylvania License to Carry Firearms are authorized to carry a firearm concealed on their person while they are within a state park.
Complete information on hunting rules and regulations in Pennsylvania is available from the Pennsylvania Game Commission Web site.
