Park Alerts ( 2 Alerts )

  • All trails are closed to mountain bikes and horses.  Due to poor trail conditions, DCNR and The Countryside Conservancy are closing all trails to Mountain Biking and Horse Riding. This trail preservation initiative will continue throughout the winter and into the spring.  Should conditions warrant, the trails will be reopened. Please check this website for up-to-date information on trail availability.

  • Contrary to the information on Google, Pennsylvania state parks are open every day of the year. Day use areas close at dusk. Park offices are open specific hours. Pools, beaches, and campgrounds are open specific seasons.
