Rothrock State Forest Recreational Trails Assessment
The Rothrock State Forest District, with the assistance of Applied Trails Research and Kay-Linn Enterprises, has been studying how best to improve the experience of Forest users while also identifying potential additional recreation opportunities within the district. Following two years of consultations with the various users of Rothrock State Forest and assessments of current trail offerings and conditions a recommended recreation management plan for the District has been completed. If you were unable to attend the public meeting held on Tuesday, July 10th, 2018 you can check out the entire report of recommendations for the future of recreational trails in Rothrock at this link.
