Winter Road Conditions

All roads within Bald Eagle State Forest (including Ground Oak Trail and North Sand Mountain Trail) are not maintained for winter weather conditions and users must exercise extreme caution.

State forest roads are “travel at your own risk” and may be designated for snowmobile use. Visitors whose vehicles become stuck will be required to contact a towing/vehicle removal service for road assistance.

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.
