Cross-country Skiing

The Susquehannock State Forest offers over 40 miles of designated cross-country ski trails. The most popular trail is the Denton Hill XC trail system. Most of the trail is groomed periodically during the season. At over 20 miles, it provides skiing opportunities for the beginner or the experienced. Suggested loops vary from a few miles to over 12 miles. The Billy Lewis Bike, Hike, XC trail offers 14 miles of skiing opportunity and the Pine Mountain XC trail offers about 7 miles of skiing. Many foot trails, gated timber sale roads, and old railroad grades are also used by cross-country skiers.

Downhill Skiing

There is one state owned, leased skiing facility on the forest located about 12 miles east of Coudersport, on U.S. 6, at Denton Hill State Park. It has several slopes and lifts, a clubhouse, and offers ski instruction during the skiing season.
