The One Place In Pennsylvania That Looks Like Something From Middle Earth

Step straight into a magical world of hobbits, elves, and good versus evil when you visit Loyalsock State Forest. Or, at least feel as though Merry, Pippin, Frodo, or Legolas might be traveling through the state forest, carpeted with lush green and protected by towering trees. Are you ready for a trip to Pennsylvania’s very own Middle Earth (and, in some spots, the Shire)?
