Tyler State Park reviews
I've been to many of Pennsylvania's state parks and this is one of the least impressive. There is not a lot to see or do but a good place to walk the trails and take in nature.

Beautiful state park with trails for hiking and horseback riding. Schofield Ford covered bridge is located within the park, about 1/4 mile from the parking area.

Nice state park with plenty of trails to explore. We had heard a lot about the covered bridge and took the lane 1 trail to the covered bridge. The trail took us 1 hour 45 minutes total but pretty easy and doable. The trail is bike/ car friendly and is completely paved. I wish there was more information regarding all the available trails. We are definitely coming back to explore other trails. I highly recommend checking out the covered bridge and walking across it. IG: journey_man16
Always love coming to this park. A lot of parking lots to find parking but if it's a nice weekend (summer) you better get here early because you will not find any or will be closed due to no spots. Go through the main entrance hit stop sign make a right go all the way down the road to last parking lot. This is where you should start. Canoe rentals, water fall (small) food stand, grills and tables. Good paved trails all through out with off the beaten path trails all over. If you are on the off path just watch for horses that people ride in the park. Me I enjoy walking the trails to photograph the wildlife.
