More than 163,000 acres, Tioga State Forest provides plentiful recreational opportunities including hunting, fishing, hiking, primitive camping, snowmobiling, mountain biking. The 30-mile long West Rim Trail runs along the western rim of PA's Grand Canyon. Many vistas have been cleared along the trail to provide the hiker with views of the Pine Creek Gorge. The 62-mile Pine Creek Rail Trail travels through this forest. Primitive campers spending no more than one night at a campsite typically do not need a camping permit, except within the Pine Creek valley. Primitive camping is carry in, carry out. Always let someone know when and where you will be hiking. Leave no trace of your activities. Trails within the forest are open to hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding, unless posted closed. Contact the district office for trail information, maps, self-guiding brochures and for camping permit information.
