The 1349 acres of Jenksville State Forest includes a 12 mile trail for horses, hiking & cross country skiing. Owego Creek cuts through town on its way to the Susquehanna, with trout accessible from the state parking areas & trails. The Berkshire Rod & Gun Club encourages safe hunting practices with hunting safety courses and shooting events.
