The George B. Stevenson Dam Trail at Sinnemahoning State Park near Austin, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.7-mile out-and-back trail that features beautiful views of the George B. Stevenson Reservoir, First Fork Sinnemahoning Creek, and the surrounding mountains.

This trail is a universal access trail made of mostly gravel that runs along the top of the George B. Stevenson Dam and has a very flat elevation grade. The trail has views to both sides - facing north is the George B. Stevenson Reservoir and the First Fork Sinnemahoning Creek. To the south is the dam spillway where the First Fork Sinnemahoning Creek continues south.

This trail is perfect for families, walkers, and day hikers on road trips since this is a great stopping point on a long drive.

Warning
Hikers should not leave the trail area because signs posted along the trail as visitors to stay out.

Parking
Hikers can find parking at the coordinates provided. The lot is large enough to accommodate several dozen vehicles.

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

Wild Elk
This area is known to have wild elk grazing from time to time. Upon our visit, some wild elk were grazing at the recreation area just south of the dam; however, we did not drive down the road to see them. The slopes of the back of the dike provide plenty of food for deer and elk, so you may find some wildlife just by walking this short and easy trail.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
