Overview

Nestled in four counties of Northwestern Pennsylvania are the 513,000 acres of the Allegheny National Forest, so designated by a proclamation signed by U.S. President Calvin Coolidge in 1923. A Guide to the Allegheny National Forest is the most current and comprehensive visitor’s guide ever written for this national treasure.

Designed in a handy pocket book format, the guide briefly explores the human and geological history of the forest and includes hints on how to enjoy the forest safely. The book then describes the three distinct natural areas of the forest and features the activities available in each of these areas.

The three sections highlight the hiking trails, campgrounds (developed, dispersed, and primitive), recreation areas, picnic areas, snowmobile and ATV access sites, and the swimming, boating, and canoeing opportunities available in these areas. They also include trail maps, directions to ranger stations, addresses and phone numbers for lodging, rentals, and attractions in the area, even information on educational programs available in the forest. No other book so completely and comprehensively facilitates your next trip to the forest.
