Last Known StatusOpen

This state forest offers 14 miles of ATV trails with scenic views of the Pocono Mountains. The majority of the terrain is hard packed and smooth but there are some sections that are a bit rugged with sharp rocks and scattered tree roots. During wet weather the trails often become soggy and waterlogged, creating some wide and deep puddles.

The staging area is only open during daylight hours but camping with direct off-road trail access can be found a few minutes away at Peaceful Woodlands Family Campground. The campground offers RV sites with electric and water hookups, cabin rentals, a swimming pool and general store that sells firewood, bagged ice and propane.

The trails open for the summer season beginning Friday before Memorial Day through the last full weekend in September, then reopen for winter riding the day after deer hunting season (generally two weeks after Thanksgiving) through April 1.

Pohopoco Tract ATV Area Trail

Yes, these ATV trails get a little muddy during the winter season, and the summer season too, so just expect that.

Here is a free Kawasaki ATV if you want to swim for it. Expect to encounter several deep puddles after a rain storm.

After a good rain, the ATV trails get waterlogged. But if you wait a few days to let the area dry out it is not so bad.

Another shot taken during the winter season. You're gonna have to power wash your ATV after this short ride, but it is still a lot of fun.
