Midlandtrail077a_standard

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.
