Allegheny National Forest

Known as "the land of many uses," the Allegheny National Forest spans over 500,000 acres, serving as Pennsylvania's only national forest.


The Allegheny National Forest was established in 1923 to combat the over-harvesting and subsequent elimination of most of the native woods in the Allegheny Plateau. In fact, the land was so stripped of trees at one point that it was known as the “Allegheny Brush Pile.” The work of the US Forest Service in the Allegheny National Forest over the past 100 years has been quite successful as the forest is once again a flourishing ecosystem that is healthy and full of wildlife and a variety of trees.


The Allegheny National Forest is home to many creatures including eagles, turkeys, foxes, bear, and deer, making Warren County a preferred destination for serious outdoorsmen and casual fresh air seekers alike with ample opportunities for outdoor recreation. Whether you are looking for an adventure or a peaceful respite, the Allegheny National Forest covers it all with places to go mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, ATVing, camping, and boating and also boasts some of the most stunning views in this part of the United States.


The Allegheny National Forest celebrated its centennial year in 2023.
