Swift Run Road is an easy gravel road along the Snyder-Middleswarth Natural Area within the Bald Eagle State Forest. This road takes users to a ton of recreational activities, including hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, picnicking, and birdwatching. The road is two vehicles wide the entire way, passing State Forest campsites 64, 65, and 66. Camping permits and reservations are required for all State Forest Campsites and can be reserved online or by calling the State Forest Office. Swift Run Road also takes users to two picnic areas. Snyder-Middleswarth Picnic Area is a large picnic area on the creek's edge. Several large group tables and pavilions make this an excellent place to bring a group or large family. Rock Springs Picnic Area has a vault toilet and individual picnic tables, making it best for small families. You will find plenty of fantastic pullouts along this road to stop and enjoy the tranquil environment along Swift Run Creek. This road is suitable for any vehicle.
