Quebec Run Wild AreaImage of Quebec Run

The Quebec Run Wild Area is a densely forested, 7,441 acre section of the Forbes State Forest located on Chestnut Ridge in southern Fayette County, Pennsylvania just north of the Mason and Dixon Line and Pennsylvania’s border with West Virginia. The site is bisected by fast running, rocky streams (including Quebec Run, Tebolt Run, and Mill Run) all of which flow into Big Sandy Creek. The forests of Quebec Run Wild Area are young (much of the site was logged around 1940) with an abundance of red oak, red maple, mixes of chestnut and white oak, black cherry, and some hidden hollows of hemlock. It is a glorious place to hike and to get far away from the noise and clutter of civilization.
