Sightseeing

The District offers the Hoover Farm wildlife viewing site as well as the Beaver Run Viewing site. These sites provide an opportunity to see white-tailed deer, an enormous variety of song birds, eastern wild turkey, predatory birds, foxes, coyotes and possibly an occasional elk, along with many other species of mammals, reptiles, insects, flowers and grasses. Moshannon has more than 200 miles of forest gravel roads. About half of the roads are limestone surfaced and the rest are of native soil materials. Scenic driving to view spring green up, summer mountain laurel blooms and autumn color is a favorite recreational pursuit. The keen observer may note some subtle vistas overlooking Mosquito Creek and other stream valleys draining the Allegheny Plateau.
