GPS: 40.076225, -79.254502

13 km of trails
Warming facilities available

Reaching any of the parking lots often requires 4WD - there are two lots on Tunnel Rd and another on Shafer Run.  The warming hut is not accessible by car, it's at the bottom of a valley.  There's a flat trail leading there from the Shafer Run parking lot - see the trail map.  The outhouse by the warming hut is closed at present; the nearest restrooms are in the snowmobile parking lot opposite Fire Tower Rd (no running water), or at Kooser State Park office (with running water and heating).
