Please see the DCNR alert details regarding state forest closures due to COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Browns Run Road Closure

Beginning Friday, May 1, 2020, Browns Run Road will be closed for a culvert/bridge replacement at the point where it crosses Browns Run, approximately 0.8 miles off of Route 44.

Detour signs will be in place. Please see the Tiadaghton State Forest Public Use Map (PDF) to view the area. Re-opening is tentatively schedule for early fall of 2020.

Slate Run Road to Reopen

Slate Run Road will reopen to vehicles on Friday, November 1, 2019, by 3:00 P.M.

Background: Due to extreme weather in 2018, Slate Run Road in the northern section of Tiadaghton State Forest experienced multiple landslides. The resulting hazardous conditions necessitated closure of the road in September 2018 -- from the Manor Fork intersection to the Francis Road intersection.

Please see the Slate Run Road Closure and Detour Map (PDF) for additional information.

Actions to fix Slate Run Road have been ongoing since September 2018, including:

  • Consultations
  • Estimates
  • Core-sampling
  • Site surveying
  • Active Construction

Construction activities were estimated to begin on Thursday, April 18, 2019. Completion of construction activities was estimated to be mid-summer, 2019.

Please contact the Tiadaghton State Forest district office at 570-753-5409 with questions or concerns.

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.
