Moshannon State Forest Attraction Details
Moshannon State Forest
http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/forestry/stateforests/moshannon.aspx
More and more people are making us of the Moshannon State Forest as their recreation outlet. In recent years there has been an increasing demand for types of recreation that only large tracts of forest lands can provide. Traditional outdoor activities such as hunting and fishing have been stable, but such things as cross-country skiing, mountain biking, backpacking, horse back riding and motorized recreational activity increase each year. Some of these have required the construction of new or the upgrading of older trail systems. Maps have been created for a number of the specialty trails and may be obtained at the district office.

There are three State Parks within the Moshannon State Forest. Two of them are administered from the same office. They are: Parker Dam State Park, S.B. Elliott State Park, and Black Moshannon State Park. Plus The 975-acre Marion Brooks Natural Area is the site of a pure stand of white birch trees. It is adjacent to the Quehanna Wild Area. This area is preserved so that nature may take its course, free from human intervention.
