Tioga State Forest derives its name from the Seneca phrase "meeting of two rivers." It covers 161,890 acres in Bradford and Tioga counties. The forest hosts the Pine Creek Gorge, also known as the "Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania." Tioga features awe-inspiring views and miles of clean, cool streams, like Cedar Run and Babbs Creek and is one of eight state forests located in the PA Wilds region.

Road Closures

On June 6, 2015 due to the 2015 Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally (STPR), all alcohol, spirits, and malt beverages will be prohibited on Tioga and Susquehannock State Forest lands. The public should keep this in mind when visiting the Tioga and Susquehannock State Forests.  For more information contact the Tioga State Forest District Office in Wellsboro Monday – Friday 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM at (570) 724-2868.

Wellsboro, PA – The Tioga State Forest staff will replace a bridge over Lick Creek in Bloss Township, Tioga County. The bridge is located one mile East of Arnot on the Landrus Road. No runaround for public use will be available during construction. The locations of the road closure gates during construction will be at the power line and Silver Run. This section of road between the gates will be closed to the public effective June 15, 2015, until the bridge replacement has been completed. The contractor is expected to complete the project by July 13, 2015. Any questions regarding the bridge replacement can be addressed at the Tioga State Forest District Office at (570) 724-2868.

Old Supply Trail and Quarry Trail are closed due to a combination of road conditions and active timber sales.
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.
