Riding on State Lands
Pennsylvania’s Department of Conservation and Natural Resources reminds us that spring, summer and fall are not the only times to enjoy Pennsylvania state parks. Visitors find a surprising number of activities that are best enjoyed in the snowy landscape.
Most parks offer designated snowmobile trails for exploration. Others designate large, open spaces for snowmobiling. State parks also provide trailhead access to snowmobile trails on state forest land. Find out where snowmobile trails are in state parks and forests, or call 888-PA-PARKS for a copy of the printed publication.
And please remember, in order to ride on State lands:
- A snowmobile must be properly registered with the snowmobile unit in the Bureau of Forestry, DCNR, and have the permit visibly displayed.
- Any youth under the age of 16 MUST have safety certification before they can operate a snowmobile off their parents’ property.
- All riders are required to wear an approved helmet.
- Liability insurance is required.
