The Gas Well Hollow Connector Trail at Austin Dam Memorial Park in Austin, Pennsylvania is a moderate 1-mile trail.

This hiking trail transverses across a ridgeline from the head of Stuckey Hollow at the top of the Jones Run Connector Trail to the southwest to the mouth of Gas Well Hollow. A favorite of this hike is a side-hill slope journey through an impressive stand of old-growth white pines at the bottom of Gas Well hollow.

Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...
