The Bee Tree Ski Connector Trail at Tioga State Forest in Gaines, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.1-mile one-way trail that connects both the Bee Tree Ski Trail and the Deadman Hollow Run Trail.
This trail is a great alternative to hiking a small section of the Bee Tree Ski Trail adjacent to here because of very wet ground - essentially a creek that flows down the Bee Tree Ski Trail - all times of the year. The trail flooding is especially bad during warmer months and just after heavy rainfalls or during snow melt.
This trail includes a fork closest to the Deadman Hollow Run Trail. One part of the fork is very short while the other is about 100-feet long before it connects back to the Deadman Holllow Run Trail.
Hikers will find parking available at the coordinates provided. The lot is large enough to fit about 5 vehicles.
Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.
While there are no designated campsites along this trail, campers and backpackers are permitted to camp off-trail. Campers must follow the state forest's rules and regulations before setting up a campsite. Remember to leave no trace.
Mountain biking is permitted along this trail.
