Hibernia Park


Some of the internal hiking trails and maintenance roads at Hibernia County Park will be temporarily closed for the completion of natural resource/ timber harvest operations. The areas affected are the trails and roads leading to the campgrounds and adjacent forests.  Heavy equipment will be used during the operation and these areas need to be closed for visitor safety.  Timber harvest operations will be in effect during all park hours Monday through Thursday as well as Friday mornings.  Hiking and Camping (beginning May 22) will be permitted Friday afternoons, Saturdays, Sundays and certain holidays including Memorial Day.

These trail sections include the entire Lake Trail.  The section of Cedar Hollow Trail from Scout Field through the Lake Campground and through to Fiddlers’ Field.  The Connecting Trails from Fiddlers’ parking lot to the campgrounds.  Campground Road will also be closed.  All of these trail heads are clearly field marked for visitor identification and safety.  Trails will be reopened in the near future.   

Park offices, structures, and other amenities will be closed at all parks. 

Even though our park offices are closed to the public we are still working to provide services and answer all of the questions.  Please send us an email at parkspres@chesco.org or call us at 610-344-6415.

From Hibernia Mansion, the tour explores ruins, structures and landscape features located on Forest Hill and Forge Trails and Lion’s Head Drive that tell the story of Hibernia’s past. Brochures detailing these features are available at the park office.

Hibernia Mansion, home of 19th century Ironmasters, graces Hibernia’s hillside. It is open for public tours on Sunday afternoons, Memorial Day to Labor Day. In December, the Mansion offers candlelight tours.
