Rush Creek State Forest covers a total of 1,404 acres and borders the 4,475-acre Hanging Bog Wildlife Management Area. The forest cover types here are primarily native hardwood species, with a smaller number of planted conifers. There are no designated trails but hiking is allowed throughout the property.
Unlike many of the state forest areas in Allegany County, most of Rush Creek State Forest has been in continuous forested cover throughout its history. Only about a third of the acreage was ever cleared for cultivation or pasture. Some of the largest unbroken areas of hardwoods on state forests in Allegany County can be found here.
