​Advisories for Tiadaghton State Forest

Robbins Run Road and Gottshall Road (Crawford Township, Clinton County) will be closed for a road resurfacing project starting Tuesday, May 21, 2024, and lasting approxim​ately two weeks.

Please plan accordingly​ and avoid travel on ​​these roads.

Stay Alert for ATVs on Roads

Tiadaghton State Forest participates in the ATV Pilot program, which includes some PennDOT and township roads in addition to legal opportunities on state forest trails and roads.

Motorists are advised to stay alert for ATVs, crossings, and signage.

Please see the 2023 ATV Regional Trail Connector Pilot map to view the pilot route.

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.

Snowmobile Trail Closure -- Dividing Line Trail

The 1.2-mile Dividing Line Trail, located north of Lucullus and east of the Coudersport Pike Snowmobile Trail, is closed indefinitely.
