Allegheny National Forest


Southern boundary of the Allegheny National Forest to the Pennsylvania/New York state line.

About 97% of this section is National Park Service certified, passing through the ultra-scenic Allegheny National Forest (ANF). The Forest features wildlife, several scenic overlooks, and plentiful camping and water. It’s perfect for a day hike or a multi-day adventure.
