Big Tree Hollow Trail

Camping Allowed

Dogs (leashed)

The Big Tree Hollow Trail at the Asaph Wild Area in Tioga State Forest, Pennsylvania is a difficult 1.1-mile out-and-back trail that leads from Left Asaph Road up to the Middle Ridge and the Middle Ridge Trail in the wilderness.

The trail begins along a gradual slope ascending the mountainside up to Middle Ridge, but the hike up does not get difficult until about half-way through when the grade changes. The trail itself is wide enough and mostly-maintained with a small bit of overgrowth during the late Summer. Loose rock can be found further up the trail along the steeper grade section of the hike as well, so watch your footing while hiking this section.

Hiking this trail is fairly straight forward since the yellow blazes are well-marked and the trail is mostly clear, so hikers will not have a difficult time finding their way.

Parking: Parking can be found along the road near the parking coordinates provided; however, there's just enough space for vehicles to pull over to allow enough space for the road.

Pets: Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Camping: Camping is allowed within the Asaph Wild Area (wilderness); however, there are no designated campsites along this trail. Due to the steep grade along the mountain off the trail, I'd doubt there would be many good camping areas aside from a hammock spot.

Warning: Hunting is allowed in this area. It's smart to wear blaze orange when hiking here.
