It has been a century since the Northcentral Highlands of Pennsylvania echoed with the sounds of timbering in its forests. This land is now, once more, a magnificent forest. In fact, almost half of Pennsylvania's state forests are in our region! Our area offers unparalleled scenery, clear and clean trout-filled waters, cathedral-like forests that teem with wildlife and more opportunities to escape the modern world and explore the natural world than you ever could imagine!
