Cavanaugh Nature Trail

0.6 Miles

Dogs (leashed)

The Cavanaugh Nature Trail at Tioga State Forest near Wellsboro, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.6-mile loop trail that passes through open fields in the middle of a mountainous valley. During warmer months, wildflowers can be found growing here.

The trail is a very flat which makes for an easy walk through the fields. This recording follows the outer-most loop, but there are several bisecting trails that hikers can take to cut across different portions of the outer loop.

After exploring this trail, hikers have the option to take a walk down the Pine Creek Trail since the trailhead for the Cavanaugh Nature Trail sits alongside the Pine Creek Trail.

This trail was built as an Eagle Scout project in 2018 by Nathan Redell's Troop 2046.

Hikers can find parking at the coordinates provided at the Cavanaugh Access Lot, which is also for the Pine Creek Trail. The parking lot is large enough to fit about a dozen vehicles.

Dogs are allowed if leashed.
