What to do in Hyner View State Park

The focal point of Hyner View State Park is the overlook wall, constructed in the 1930's by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). In 1949, the present park access road was built providing better access to the view. With the opening of this road the Flaming Foliage Festival, a local tourist promotion project, was first held at the view. This festival has since outgrown the view and has been moved to the foot of the mountain.
Hang gliding and picnicking are the two most popular attractions to Hyner View State Park. Hunting is prohibited within the state park, however, thousands of acres of nearby public land provide excellent small and big game hunting, trapping and dog training.

Other public lands in the area include: Bucktail, Sproul, Bald Eagle, Kettle Creek, Little Pine, Hyner Run and Ole Bull.
