The Gundigut Trail at Tioga State Forest near Blackwell, Pennsylvania is a moderate 0.9-mile out-and-back trail that runs down a hollow and through a thicket of rhododendron to connect with the West Rim Trail.
This trail really has nothing to see and the hike itself is a bit annoying (as of Oct 2020) because of the overgrown rhododendron that line the trail. This trail is best used to connect with the West Rim Trail.
Dogs are allowed if leashed.
Hikers will find a parking turnout across from the trailhead that can accommodate about 5 vehicles.
Backpacking and Camping
Backpackers will find no place to setup a tent along this trail because of the thick rhododendron that litter the forest floor in this part of Tioga State Forest. Camping is technically allowed off-trail, but good luck finding a spot to pitch a tent or hang a hammock. Please follow all state forest rules and regulations when backcountry / primitive / dispersed camping.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I 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.
