Alerts: 
NO FIRES in Tioga State Forest until further notice due to drought conditions. (7/16)

Part of MST Section 18, km 0.92 to 7.13 NB (5.69 KM), on private property in Duncan Twp, Tioga County, is closed indefinitely due to heavy construction activity. (This is the same section that had the Oct 1-Jan 15 hunting season closure.) As during hunting season hikers will need to detour along SR 3009 through downtown Antrim, turning at the stone church to continue to follow SR 3009. We appreciate your understanding during this time and it is not known when the trail will be able to be reopened. The interim road route is blazed yellow and is described in the 12th edition Guide. (07/12)

Gas drilling and pipeline work is under way on private land in this section. At this time we think any interruptions in the route will be short term in nature and able to be detoured using the nearest road. Wimbrough Campsite is again accessible.
