Hiking in Tioga State Forest

Many miles of trails are available for hiking in Tioga State Forest, revealing some of the most beautiful scenery in Pennsylvania.

West Rim Trail

A designated State Forest Hiking Trail, the West Rim Trail is a 30-mile hiking trail maintained along the western rim of Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon.

Many vistas have been cleared along the trail to provide hikers with views of the Pine Creek Valley.

Other District Trails

Barbour Rock Trail

The Barbour Rock Trail provides a one-mile round trip from the parking area along Colton Road to Barbour Rock Vista which overlooks Owassee Rapids on Pine Creek. A handicapped accessible trail provides a leisurely trip to the vista.

Pine Creek Rail Trail

The Pine Creek Rail Trail was developed by the Bureau of Forestry on an abandoned railroad grade that parallels Pine Creek. The trail extends 62 miles south from Wellsboro Junction to Jersey Shore in the adjoining Tiadaghton State Forest.

The trail is used primarily for bicycling, walking, and cross-country skiing. The section from Ansonia south to Tiadaghton contains a horseback riding trail next to the bicycling trail.
