Although we could not cover all the details of all the trails in Pennsylvania, we hope to provide a generous selection of information to entice snow lovers of every skill level and area of interest to have some winter fun. There is no better way to avoid cabin fever during a long, cold Pennsylvania winter.

We are not responsible for the quality of the maps or any of the images that are not originally ours.

Snowboard Areas
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 there is snow in state parks with our Winter Activities Report, updated twice a week from December until spring thaw.

The hotline is updated every Tuesday and Friday of the winter season. 

In order to use your snowmobile on state lands, the vehicle must be properly registered with the snowmobile unit in the Snowmobile/ATV Registration Section and have the permit visibly displayed. To find out any additional details about the program, call the ATV/Snowmobile Unit at 717-783-1364.
