Tuscarora State Forest

40°28’46” (N) 77°22’15” (W)



The wild area has many attractions in its remote
location. These pictures show just two of them,
a stone wall supporting a trail that was part of
the narrow gauge rail system, and an old log
slide. You can gain access to the wild area
through Game Land 88 or from Route 333 in
Juniata County where you will see this sign.
