Explore the Allegheny National Forest!
Established in 1923, the Allegheny National Forest (ANF) is Pennsylvania's only National Forest.
Situated on the Allegheny Plateau, the forest is comprised of 514,029 acres in the northwestern corner of the state.
The U.S. Forest Service brought new concepts in forest management to the Allegheny Plateau -- multiple benefits, sustainability, and collaborative partnerships. The slogan “Land of Many Uses” captures our vision of a healthy, vigorous, working forest that provides timber and wood products, watershed protection, access to underground minerals, ties to cultural history, a diversity of wildlife habitats, and outstanding outdoor recreation opportunities -- not only today but in a sustainable way so future generations can enjoy these benefits.
