The Tom Tinker Trail at Kane Woods Nature Area in Scott Township, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.6 mile out-and-back trail that leads from the main parking area over to the eastern portion of the Liberty Trail. This trail is likely the most scenic trail at Kane Woods and runs directly along a creek with small slate rock waterfalls.

The trail is essentially flat, until you reach where two main creeks merge to form one creek - there's also a bench at this intersection. You'll cross the creek on a wooden bridge, but at the creek junction, there's no bridge - you may need to hike through a small amount of water depending on the time of year.

Dogs are allowed, but no biking.

Note: This trail is listed as 0.6 miles out-and-back; however, it's really just a 0.3 mile one-way trail. If you plan to hit each trail at Kane Woods in one day, you'll likely end up hiking one of the trails out-and-back since there's an odd number of trails to form a loop.

Before you leave...

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups 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, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
