Dans Mountain State Park

​Update September 2022: A new hiking and mountain biking trail​ is partially complete at Dans Mountain State Park and open for public use. Parking is available near the Mountain Top Pavilion and playground. Follow the temporary wayfinding signage to locate the trail head by the pond off of Steel Road. The completed section of trail is approximately three miles in length and is rated moderate in difficulty with some challenging sections due to the variability of terrain and changes in elevation. Please do not access segments of trail that are still under construction.

​ ​

​Dans Mountain Pool is closed for the season. Bathhouse renovations are underway and should be complete in time for the pool to reopen for the 2023 summer season.
