Do not bring firewood from home to the Allegheny National Forest. You could unwittingly spread the emerald ash borer, sirex wood wasp, hemlock woolly adelgid or other firewood borne invasive species. Possession of firewood from outside the area of the Allegheny National Forest is prohibited. Firewood is available at or near camping facilities.
August 8, 2016 - Here's an update on the going trail construction for the ATV/bike trails: The Timberline and Marienville ATV are completed and a section of the Marienville Bike Trail is completed (highlighted in green). The ongoing construction is from Forest Road 226 to the Penoke Trailhead (highlighted in orange).
The Allegheny National Forest is warning boaters to use caution when launching and mooring boats on the Allegheny Reservoir because water levels are about nine feet below summer levels and are getting lower each day.
The Kinzua Wolf Run Marina has issued a low water warning for boaters and are closely monitoring water levels and are marking underwater hazards with buoys. All marked spots are in areas that are low enough to cause damage to most boats.
If you have any questions, please call the Bradford Ranger District at 814.362.4613.

If you come across metal tubes on the Marienville District similar to the two shown on this link: /Internet/FSE_MEDIA/fseprd508443.jpg, please be aware that they are harmless copper tubes which are being used for research to record temperatures.
The ANF's Marienville RD has temporarily closed approximately 5-1/2 miles of Forest Service Road 131 between State Road 3002 north to the Forest Service Road 228 intersection. The road was closed because of concerns that a slump in the road may expand following the recent heavy rains.
Forest Service Road 131 will also be closed to dispersed camping, but the Loleta Campground is open. Engineering crews are monitoring the road and will begin repairs as quickly as possible.
For additional information, please contact the Marienville Ranger District at 814.927.5700.
