There are many opportunities to see wildlife, but please observe from a safe distance and do not feed wildlife. The State Forest is a good place to see turkey, grouse, white-tailed deer, black bears, and a wide variety of song birds. There is an observation deck at Pine Hill on the Thornhurst tract that provides a sweeping panoramic view of the Pocono plateau and the start of the ridge and valley system. Fall foliage viewing attracts many visitors each year to the various tracts of the Pinchot State Forest.
