The Rothrock State Forest District, with the assistance of Applied Trails Research and KayLinn 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 recreation management plan for the District has been completed. The public is invited to the Boalsburg Fire Company on the evening of July 10th, 2018 at 6:30 pm where the plan and its recommendations for a network of new trails will be presented. More information about the event can be found here or on our Facebook Page. Hope to see you there!
Those who are interested in attending are asked to please RSVP with Rothrock State Forest via email at email@example.com or by checking the going box on the event listing on our Facebook page!

Did you know hiking with your favorite canine companion is healthy not just for you but your dog as well?
According to Hiking and Backpacking with Dogs by Linda Mullally enjoying the outdoors not only provides a number of health benefits to both you and your dog but also provides them with a quality bonding experience with you. The natural smells, sights, and sounds of the forest also benefit your dog mentally by providing an outlet for their natural curiosity and can help reduce destructive behavoirs or depression associated with boredom.
