Rothrock State Forest is named for Dr. Joseph Trimble Rothrock, a native of Mifflin County and the Commonwealth’s first forestry commissioner. He is recognized as the “Father of Forestry” in Pennsylvania. Rothrock State Forest comprises 96,975 acres that spread across the rugged ridges of Huntingdon, Centre and Mifflin counties.


Road Closures

The parking area at the Galbraith Gap trailhead near the Tussey mountain Ski Area will be closed on November 19 and 20 for the installation of a precast concrete restroom building.

The Crowfield Road bridge near Penn Roosevelt State Park is open to traffic.

Don't Move Firewood

To help protect the forest from invasive insects that can kill trees and devastate the ecosystem, please do not transport firewood over long distances. Firewood can harbor insects such as emerald ash borer. Cut or purchase your firewood where you intend to burn it.
