McKean County Pennsylvania Hiking Trails

Deer Lick Cross Country Ski Area

Allegheny National Forest

Length:  9.0 miles

This 14.8 kilometer (9.0 mile) trail utilizes old railroad grades, roads and pipelines to form several loops for your hiking or skiing pleasure.

This trail is for hiking, skiing and mountain biking.  Motorized vehicles, ATVs and snowmobiles, are not allowed on any of the trails.  Forest trails policy prohibits the use of a saddle, pack or draft animals on hiking or cross county ski trails.  If you are hunting in the area, please make sure you are outside the campground boundary.  All dogs must be on leashes when using the trail.

Watch the informational signs. This trail area is ungroomed and includes a combination of logging roads, railroad grades, and pipelines that offer challenges to a wide range of skill levels--from the novice to the most experienced skier. The Reservoir Loop is suitable for beginning skiers. The Deer Lick and Pipeline Loops are better suited for more experienced schussers. The Reservoir Loop offers a scenic view of Deer Lick Reservoir as you come down Deer Lick Run. Deer Lick Loop forms a loop inside the Pipeline Loop and offers a higher level of challenge. The Pipeline Loop offers the most challenge as it climbs to the headwaters of Deer Lick and Roystone Runs. The hemlocks down along Deer Lick Run offer visual variety in contrast to the Northern and Allegheny Hardwoods on the hillsides and up the plateau. Wildlife is abundant in this area; watch for turkey, deer, squirrels and birds, particularly down along Deer Lick Run.


The trailhead and parking area is located at the intersection of Tollgate Road and US 6, east of Sheffield, PA.
