The Weiser State Forest, Penn Forest Tract contains 958 acres in Penn Forest Township, Carbon County. The original tract contained 170 acres, which was purchased in 1928. This parcel was an internal holding surrounded by the Bethlehem Water Authority property and was traded to them for the present 958 acres just west of their property in 1948. 

Recreational activities include wildlife watching, nature study, hiking, hunting, fishing, mountain biking, backpacking, cross-country skiing, and horseback riding."
