Loyalsock State Forest is named for the Loyalsock Creek, a scenic  freestone stream that winds through the heart of its 114,552 acres.
Recreational  opportunities include snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, horseback  riding, hiking, hunting and fishing. In addition to many shorter local  trails, 33 miles of the Loyalsock Trail travel through this forest.

The  trail parallels the creek, mostly following ridges, but at times  passing mountain streams, waterfalls, lakes, and ponds. Trails to suit  all hiking abilities. Trails within the forest are open to mountain  biking and horseback riding. Most trails are kept clear over the summer.  Primitive campers spending no more than one night at a campsite  typically do not need a camping permit, with certain exceptions. Contact  the district office to find out which mountain biking trails are better  for riding, for trail maps, self-guiding brochures and for camping  permit information.
