ATV Riding in Susquehannock State Forest

Susquehannock ATV Trail

Susquehannock State Forest has one designated ATV trail -- the 43-mile Susquehannock ATV Trail.

The Susquehannock ATV Trail Brochure and Map (PDF) describes the area with mileage and trailheads.

The main trailhead is at the state forest district office, but there are four smaller trailheads located along the trail.

Bathrooms are available at the district office maintenance building, the Lyman Run parking area, and one is found along the trail.

This trail system connects to the Sweden Township road system, which is open to ATV’s, near the intersection of Billy Lewis Road, Irish Farm Road, and US 6. These township roads offer riders many more miles of legal ATV riding opportunities.

ATV Regional Trail Connector Pilot

Expanded riding opportunities will be offered in 2023 through the ATV Regional Trail Connector Pilot.

Please see the Know Before You Go -- ATV Riding in Susquehannock State Forest Video for more information.

For more information about riding ATVs on state forest lands, please see the DCNR ATV Riding page.

Dust Advisory for ATV Regional Trail Connector Pilot

Roads are exceptionally dusty due to extremely dry conditions. To help minimize this issue, please consider these actions:

  • Ride in small groups to keep dust down.
  • If you are part of a large group, please consider postponing your ride until a later date.
  • Opt to ride only the state forest trail system.

The Regional ATV Connector Pilot is a partnership between local municipalities, PennDOT, and DCNR to make long distance riding opportunities available.

It takes all of these partners to make these connections possible, so reducing impacts during these extreme conditions is very important to the long-term sustainability of the program.
