Pennsylvania Outdoor Recreation Guide
Allegheny National Forest

Description: You'll find many recreation opportunities here, including swimming, fishing, boating, water skiing, hiking and camping, and leisurely scenic drives. Dirt bikers, ATVers, cross country skiers, mountain bikers and snowmobilers will love the loop trails that wind throughout the hills. Foot trails ranging from one half mile interpretive trails, to the 87 mile North Country National Scenic Trail, traverse the terrain. Several reservoirs and over 700 miles of streams offer outstanding fishing opportunities. Congress designated 87 miles of the Allegheny River, as a component of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System to protect its natural, cultural and recreational features. There are over one hundred undeveloped islands, including seven wilderness islands included in this stretch of river. The Hickory Creek Wilderness, Allegheny Islands Wilderness, and Allegheny National Recreation Areas offer rare opportunities to view unique ecosystems in a quiet, undisturbed setting.

Directions: Located in the rugged plateau country of northwestern Pennsylvania, the Allegheny National Forest is within easy driving distance of several metropolitan areas including Lake Erie to the northwest, Buffalo, New York to the north, and the Youngstown-Akron-Cleveland, Ohio areas to the west.
