Jenksville Forest


Jenksville State Forest encompasses 1,349 acres in northeastern Tioga County. The forest has a multiple-use trail system that provides family-based recreation for hunting, hiking, bird-watching, horseback riding, snowshoeing, mountain biking, trapping, and cross-country skiing. ATV use and target shooting are prohibited on this state forest. The Jenksville State Forest Brochure describes the forest, recreational opportunities on the forest and includes two detailed maps with trails. Maintenance of the 12-mile Jenksville Multiple Use Trail System is a cooperative effort between DEC and volunteers from the Volunteer Stewardship Program. Trails are marked with circular trail makers and all trails are designed by color and number and classified by the user's ability (note ability designations below for each trail color and number combination). Beginner trails have very gentle slopes and are fairly short in length. Intermediate trails have gentle to somewhat steep slopes and are moderate in length. Advanced trails have gentle to steep slopes and some sections with difficult side slopes. These trails are usually longer in length than intermediate trails. Trailhead parking is available in two locations - a small lot on Shirley Road and a larger lot (to accommodate horse trailers) on Allison Hill Road.
