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 Closure
Panther Run Road is closed. Recent heavy rains and flooding have washed out two sections of the roadway. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause forest visitors. Repairs will be made as soon as possible.
Pine Creek Rail Trail Closures
Beginning May 27, 2014 the Tioga State Forest will be installing new Trail Surface Aggregate on the Pine Creek Rail Trail from Wellsboro Junction (RT 287) to Darling Run.  Sections of the trail will be closed in this area for approximately three weeks-until at least June 20.  For more information contact DCNR Bureau of Forestry Tioga State Forest at (570) 724-2868. 
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.
