Some ANF Trails Open Tomorrow

WARREN – The Allegheny National Forest (ANF) announced the opening of its Rocky Gap ATV Trail effective at 9 a.m. Saturday, but another trail will remain closed for the time being.

The regularly scheduled opening of its ATV trail system was postponed on Memorial Day weekend due to heavy rains and flooding sustained over parts of the forest the week before their scheduled opening. Conditions have improved and affected areas have been inspected to allow the opening of the additional trails. In addition to the Rocky Gap trail opening this weekend, the Timberline Trail and Willow Creek Trail are also open. Both loops of the Marienville Trail (Bike and ATV) remain closed while necessary repairs are made.

The public is encouraged to check regularly for updated information, either on the Allegheny National Forest website ( or by calling any of its three offices (Supervisor’s Office 814-723-5150, Marienville Ranger District 814-927-6628, Bradford Ranger District 814-362-4613). Daily or annual trail permits are available at any of the three ANF offices. The Bradford Office is open on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and the Marienville Office is open Saturdays and Sundays, also from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
