The Midland Trail

Babcock State Park


The entrance to Babcock State Park is at the Midland Trail’s intersection with State Route 41. The park offers its visitors 4,127 acres of serene yet rugged beauty, a fast-flowing trout stream in a boulder-strewn canyon, and mountain vistas to be viewed from several scenic overlooks. The park, which opened in 1937, was built as a Depression-era public works project, with the main facilities and trails constructed by the young workers of the Civilian Conservation Corps.
