Tygarts State Forest will be closed to public access from November 15, 2003 to March 31, 2004 while a salvage timber harvest is conducted. The forest sustained heavy damage from last year's ice storm. This harvest is necessary to improve the overall health of the forest.
The state bought Tygarts State Forest in Carter County in 1957. It is 800 acres in size and adjoins Carter Cave State Resort Park.
