Area News In Brief…

Trail section closed

Effective Thursday, a section on the east side of the “D” Loop (FR 329) on the Timberline ATV trail on the Allegheny National Forest is closed until further notice. The section of trail affected by this closure is located from the intersection of FR 113 through FR 329, stopping north of FR 339. The west side of the Timberline Trail formerly closed is now open. A short section of FR 113 will experience heavy truck traffic during this time, so riders are urged to use caution in that area. This closure is necessary due to road construction. Information regarding this temporary closure is available on the Allegheny National Forest website at or by calling the Marienville Ranger District at (814) 927-5700.
