Linn Run is perhaps the most scenic of the State Parks in Westmoreland County, and is without a doubt a pleasant picnic location for the entire family. The mixed hardwood and evergreen forest provides a secluded retreat, as well as ample opportunity for picnicking, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, and more. There is a small but picturesque waterfall known as Adams Falls, and Flat Rock is a favorite location along Linn Run for cooling off in the midsummer heat.
