Help us hike with our dog in Pennsylvania! We'll be driving from NJ to Chicago in the last week of December, and would love to stop somewhere along the way for a few days of hiking.

We tend to enjoy what park maps usually call moderate trails that take a couple hours. Dog is mid-sized - 45 pounds and pretty fit and agile.
We know we'll have to go off I-80 and we're fine with that - it doesn't have to be easy-on/easy-off. We were thinking of the Allegheny National Forest or some of the state parks in that area, but are looking for recommendations for specific trails/areas and towns to stay that would make a good base. Bonus points for a nice-ish town, but we can stay in a pet-friendly Super 8 on a strip if necessary. We're also open to Ohio or anywhere else en route to Chicago. Thanks in advance for your wisdom, hive mind!
