The Rothrock Lizard Map will help you plan all your adventures in and around Rothrock State Forest, located minutes from State College and Penn State.

Just a few hours from Philadelphia, Baltimore, DC, New York and Pittsburgh, Rothrock State Forest offers many adventures worth the trip.
These maps are AMAZING! They make trip planning for bikepacking so easy. I am a customer and fan for life - thank you! Brad from PA
A beautifully designed, easy to read topographic map featuring contour lines, elevation data, shaded relief, and all the key details you need to plan your adventures: backroads and trails, trail use designations, road surfaces (paved/gravel/4wd), parking access, campsites, public lands, historic sites and more.
A REAL MAP FOR PEOPLE WHO LOVE REAL-WORLD EXPERIENCES
Lizard Maps are durable, waterproof, and give you the big picture – the map opens to 24” x 36” and folds easily to 4” x 8” to fit in your back pocket. The scale is 1:39,450 (1 inch = 0.6 mile). Includes both lat./lon. and UTM coordinate systems.
Public land: 90,000 acres of Rothrock State Forest, part of Bald Eagle State Forest, as well as Greenwood Furnace, Whipple Dam and Penn Roosevelt State Parks, the Penn State Stone Valley Forest, Mount Nittany Conservancy Trail System and Preserve and parts of State Game Lands 112, 118, 322.
Destinations: Alan Seeger Natural Area which has a stand of old growth hemlock and Bear Meadows Natural Area, which is among the largest freshwater bogs in the northeast.
Roads: all Lizard Maps show which roads are paved, dirt/gravel or 4wd roads as well as which are gated. Perfect for bicyclists, dual sport riders and overlanders looking to put together a remote backcountry route across public lands.
Major hiking trails: the Rothrock SF section of the 323-mile Mid State Trail (MST) shown from the MST Tunnel under Route 322 at Seven Mountains to Water Street, PA. The MST continues on the Purple Lizard Bald Eagle Lizard Map. The 84-mile Standing Stone Trail (SST) is shown from Game Lands 112 to its northern terminus with the Mid State Trail at Detweiler Run. The Mount Nittany Conservancy trails are a local favorite offering outstanding views of the town of State College and surrounding valleys.
Major biking trails: include two nationally recognized IMBA Epic Rides: the 36-mile Rothrock Trail Mix (originally called the R3 Epic) and the 27-mile Coopers Gap IMBA Epic. Both are completely mapped and offer some of the very best technical singletrack riding in the Northeast.
Even more trails: Lizard Maps highlight and designate public trails and paths including hiking, biking and rail trails managed by federal, state and local authorities. Colyer Lake features a 2.5 mile trail around it built for mountain biking and running. Juniata College in Huntingdon has a network of walking paths and hiking trails around an environmental art installation by Maya Lin. In Rothrock, the trails of Musser and Shingletown Gap are local favorites. A network of bicycle paths surround the town of State College and connect to Rothrock State Forest. The northern end of the Lower Rail Trail is shown at Water Street.
Points of interest: campgrounds, picnic areas, climbing areas, reservable car camping sites, scenic overlooks, observation towers and lizard spots.
