Big Spring State Park
Tucked in the side of Conococheague Mountain, Big Spring State Park is a quaint picnic and hiking spot maintained by Tuscarora State Forest.
A short loop trail leads to a partially completed railroad tunnel with historic information at the trailhead. The park also provides access to the Iron Horse Trail for day and overnight hiking.
The park takes its name from nearby Big Spring, whose waters form the scenic Shermans Creek.
The 45-acre Big Spring State Park is 5.5 miles southwest of New Germantown, Perry County, along PA 274.
