Moshannon State Forest boasts an extensive 244-mile hiking trail system. Its largest is the Quehanna Trail, a designated state forest trail, traversing Moshannon from Parker Dam to Sinnemahoning in the Elk State Forest. Spend a few hours or days exploring the Quehanna Trail, a 75-mile loop trail in the Moshannon and Elk State Forests. The Trail passes through some of the most wild and beautiful country PA has to offer. Primitive campers spending no more than one night at a campsite typically do not need a camping permit, with certain exceptions. Primitive camping is carry in, carry out, and leave no trace. Trails blazed with blue paint are open to mountain biking and horseback riding. Hunting and fishing opportunities are many. Wildlife viewing is always an option, whether on trails, the Elk Scenic Drive or at an Osprey viewing program. Contact the district office for more information on trails and programs, for maps, self-guiding brochures and camping permit information.
