Friends of Weiser (Haldeman/Greenland Tracts)January 13, 2016
The Friends of Weiser organized in 2010 in order to ensure the future use of forest lands through the preservation of forest trails. The trails at Weiser State Forest are multi-use meaning most trails are open to hikers, bikers, horses, hunters and hand gliders. The group works in cooperation with the DCNR forestry personnel who approve all project improvements. Within the Weiser State Forest are some very rugged and secluded wooded areas. These areas can be reached by the 65 miles of roads which have been constructed for wildfire suppression and administrative use.
All State Forest Lands are open to the public for hunting, fishing and general recreation.
There are two small State Forest Picnic Areas located on the Haldeman State Forest Tract in Dauphin County. These picnic areas offer a secluded place to “get away from it all.”
