Snow-Mobility Weekend

Winter snow in the lumberwoods of northern Pennsylvania provides some unique ways to visit the PA Lumber Museum. Please join us for a ride-in/ ski-in weekend on February 15 – 17, 2019. The museum is a destination not normally accessible by snowmobile, but for THIS WEEKEND ONLY there will be a special route in place for snowmobilers from Thompson Road, south of PA Route 6, within the Susquehannock State Forest. Way-finding signs and instructions will be placed along the route. Riders will be required to cross Route 6 to enter the museum property, so please use extreme caution and watch for oncoming traffic. Riders will proceed up the hill to the museum visitor center building along the right-side margin of the paved entrance road, and may park their machines in the open area next to the parking lot. Riding on other portions of the museum grounds is prohibited.

Additionally, a guided cross-country ski excursion will begin at 9 Am on Saturday, February 16th, leaving the Susquehannock State Forest district office on Denton Hill and ending at the museum. Whether you ride-in or ski-in on the 16th, once you are here you can warm-up with hot beverages and a PANCAKE BRUNCH available between 9 Am and 2 Pm (SATURDAY ONLY). While you eat, enjoy several documentary films shown in our program room; these films relate to our mission of educating the public about the Commonwealth’s rich lumbering history and the ongoing care, management and recreational use of the forest (of which snowmobiling is one). If you have any questions or would like to verify snow conditions, please call the museum at 814-435-2652. Regular admission rates apply for entry to museum exhibits; there is no cost to enter for food purchases. All-you-can-eat pancakes and two pieces of sausage cost $8.00. All proceeds go to benefit future museum programming. Thank you for your support.
