Experience the Trails of Pennsylvania™

Pinchot Trail

The Pinchot Trail is a 23 mile circuit trail in the Lackawanna State Forest. The trail offers a little bit of everything that a hiker would want from a trail. A scenic overlook, sheltered paths, a gurgling creek, and a bog area which contain some plants not common to Pennsylvania. Backpackers and hikers will find this trail on the Pocono Plateau challenging, exciting and beautiful.

Pinchot Trail
The Pinchot Trail is marked with orange blazes. Although it is possible to hike the entire trail in one day, most prefer to take two or more days. They either camp overnight along the trail or use one of the connector trails to make short one-day hikes. Looking for shorter hikes, you can divide the trail into two loops and hike either the north loop or the south loop on seperate days.
