Micheaux State Forrest

gettysburg , Pennsylvania

Admin: Patrick Rekkr

Micheaux State Forrest is Pennsylvania Forestry maintained area which offers rolling hills, scenic overlooks, and both novice and challenging trails. Some of the trails can be extremely rocky however they are wide and offer room to move. The best part about this trail system is not only the exploration but it is not usually super busy. Map of trail system is available both on mapplets as well as a hard copy at trail head sign Michaux is about halfway between Chambersburg and Gettysburg off US 30. To get to the horse trail head and campground, take SR 233 south from US30 about 3 miles. Turn left on Cold Spring Road (where 233 makes a sharp right); go about 3 miles past Newman Road and Three Springs Rd. The trail head is on your left at Teaberry Rd. There also is another large trailer parking and trail head access at the BIG Flat ATV trail which is where I usually park. Water is a must bring for humans depending on where and when you go on this trail system you will want to bring horse water as well..
