We have several park managed trails that extend into the Tygart State Forest. Coming up over a period of the next 4-5 weeks there will be several gun hunting seasons for deer in place. Parts of the Kiser Hollow Trail and the 4C's trail go through sections of the Tygart State Forest that is open during these hunting seasons. I would reccommend to hikers to avoid these areas during these times or wear blaze orange vests and hats while hiking during the gun hunting seasons. The dates for modern gun season is November 12-27th, 2011. The dates for muzzle loading gun season is December 10-18th.
