Wolf Rocks is located in Laurel Summit State Park in the Laurel Highlands, PA. It is a lovely walk through the woods to reach Wolf Rocks which gives a fantastic view of the surrounding area and is especially pretty in fall. 

The trail to Wolf Rocks is near the end of the parking lot for Laurel Summit State Park and is a loop trail. Starting counterclockwise, the trail is a little rocky but manageable, and the trail stays relatively flat. It is surrounded by trees and leads to the Wolf Rocks overlook. Here, there are numerous, large rocks which are great to take a rest and eat a snack while looking out into the forest. To return to the parking lot, take the trail to the left at the fork to make it a loop. This part of the trail also has some rhododendrens along the way.

This is a great trail that the whole family can enjoy. It is close to Linn Run State Park and there are other numerous trails and places to camp along Laurel Summit Road.
