Bald Eagle State Forest includes over 200,000 acres of state forest, (twice as much forest as Rothrock), offering miles and miles of stunningly beautiful trails, streams, back country roads, and much more. All this plus a whole lotta great places to explore between Millheim, Lock Haven, Lewisburg and Selinsgrove. Like all of our almost-indestructible Lizard Maps, it is printed on a paper-like waterproof plastic material and it's a big one: 24 x 36 inches.
Bald Eagle really has everything. The Lizard map is your best guide to all the hiking trails including Bald Eagle's Natural areas and State Parks which offer unique destination hiking opportunities for all ability levels and incredible ridge top vistas for you to discover and explore. For those looking to explore deep into this vast forest, the map includes a big section of Pennsylvania's acclaimed Mid State Trail and entire Central Mountains Trail System. There are miles and miles of mountain bike trails, equestrian trails, and cross country ski trails. There are four wheel drive trails, dual sport motorcycle trails and trails for non-street legal motorcycles and ATVs. Bald Eagle State Forest is also home to the famous Penns Creek and White Deer Creek fly fishing creeks. Like to explore with a paddle or float? There are water trails for canoes and kayaks and some excellent creeks perfect for a slow float on a tube.
The highlights of this forest are too many to count, but here are just a few:
For mountain bikers Bald Eagle is a true paradise of dirt roads and singletrack trails. See why the Wilderness 101 and the Transylvania Epic - two of the best mountain bike races in the country - choose sections of Bald Eagle (and Rothrock) for their race routes. The Central Mountains Trail System (CMTS) is open for biking, hiking and equestrian use, and it offers a multitude of loop trails originating from R.B. Winter State Park just off of interstate 80. Explore some of the most intensely technical trails in Pennsylvania along the CMTS.
There is a reason dual sport motorcyclists love to ride the network of singletrack and dirt roads in Bald Eagle: they are the largest network in the state and take days to explore. The Lizard maps has the dual-sport trails highlighted so you can make your own adventure. Check with DCNR for rules and regulations, some trails are closed seasonally based on environmental concerns or potential hunting season conflicts.
Camping options abound in Bald Eagle. Choose from several State Parks or 70 remote drive-in sites throughout the forest. You'll need to contact DCNR for a free camping permit, but with so many options your biggest challenge will be deciding where you want to be.
