Hiking is available on many trails in the Susquehannock State Forest, though the main trail is the Susquehannock Trail System, an 85-mile loop through the forested hills and valleys of the region. It was created by joining together a number of old and new foot trails, logging roads and abandoned railroad grades. The trail originates at the district office along Route 6 in Potter County and extends south into Clinton County. The route is well-marked with rectangular orange blazes and is mostly comfortable walking with a few steep grades.
All-terrain vehicle riding: During the summer months, a 43-mile-ATV trail is available within Susquehannock State Forest. The trail passes through Lyman Run State Park, where parking and sanitary facilities are located. A loading dock, as well as sanitary facilities and picnic tables, can be found adjacent to the forest district office.
Mountain biking: Mountain biking is permitted on state forest roads, timber sale roads and a trail that originates at the district office.
Horseback riding: Horses are allowed on all the state forest roads, timber sale roads and roads along pipelines. There are no trails designated for horseback riding.
