Please Read the Important Information Below

Due to the PennDOT construction project on the County Line Road bridge in Champion, Pennsylvania., the main route to Seven Springs Mountain Resort from Pennsylvania Turnpike Exit 91 is currently under a single-lane alternating traffic pattern controlled by temporary traffic signals.


With the high volume of traffic expected for our 8th annual Mother Earth News Fair this weekend, we are advising that all attendees use an alternate route to travel to the resort after exiting the Turnpike in Donegal.


If you will be exiting the Turnpike from Exit 91 in Donegal this weekend, please follow these directions to travel to Seven Springs Mountain Resort:

Upon exiting the Turnpike, turn left onto PA-31 E and continue for 11.7 miles
Turn right onto Trent Road and continue for 3.7 miles
At the Stop Sign, turn right onto County Line Road and continue for 5.1 miles
The Main Entrance to Seven Springs will be on your left
While avoiding major construction delays, this route will add approximately 10-20 minutes to your travel time. In order to arrive at the resort at your intended time, please be sure to allow yourself extra time for travel.


From Exit 110, Somerset:

From the exit ramp, turn right at the second light
Turn right on Route 31 West at the third traffic light
After approximately 7 miles, turn left at Pioneer Park
After approximately 4 miles, turn right at the first stop sign
Seven Springs will be 5 miles ahead on the left
