Students at the University Park campus are fortunate to live near the pristine beauty of Rothrock State Forest. This forest, and its hiking trails, can be accessed at the Galbraith Gap parking lot (8.7 miles from campus), and at the Shingletown Gap parking lot (5.7 miles from campus). Always use a map when hiking, bring water & snacks, and your fully charged cell phone.
You can take the CATA bus to the Tussey Mountain ski and recreation area, which is walking distance from Galbraith Gap. Click here for the P bus route (https://catabus.com/route-page/tussey-mountain/)
