Potter County ATV Trail

Monday, September 26, 2016

Alt Names

Lyman Run Dam, Lyman Run State Park, Susquehannock State Park, Barnes Hollow, Branch Hollow, Lyman Run Creek, Susquehannock State Forest, Denton Hill ATV Trails

Last Known StatusClosed For Season

Open to ATV use only, this area offers about 43 miles of marked trails. The terrain is mostly hardpacked and smooth with gradual elevation changes. The trails are marked and form both long and short loops.

The trail system has several trailheads to choose from but the Lyman Run State Park staging area is limited to five trailers and that machines must be hauled to and from the campground since there is no direct trail access.

Primitive camping is permitted alongside the trails but a permit is required which can be obtained by contacting the Susquehannock State Forest. Potter County Family Campground offers full RV hookups along with direct trail access.

ATVs must be registered, have proof of liability insurance and be 58" or less in width to fit through the gates.
