Roaring Run Trail

2.0 Miles Moderate

Forbes State Forest
Champion, Pennsylvania

The Roaring Run Trail at Forbes State Forest in Champion, Pennsylvania is a scenic creek-side trail that leads along Roaring Run Creek for about 6 to 8 miles out-and-back. The trail continues west until it reaches Country Line Road after about 3 to 3.5 miles (one-way); however, we only had enough time to track 2 miles out-and-back for this trail as we were losing daylight halfway through our hike.

The trail is mostly flat but runs downhill from parking for as long as the trail follows the Roaring Run Creek. When you start off on the trail, the spur trail from parking curves slightly at the first intersection, so follow signs for Roaring Run Trail.

Camping is allowed in Forbes State Forest and you can find their rules and regulations here.
