The Kinney Hollow Trail at Tioga State Forest in Shippen Township, Pennsylvania is an easy 1.4-mile out-and-back trail that runs from the mountain ridge north of Ansonia down along the Kinney Hollow Run toward the Ansonia/Asaph valley.

This recording begins at the trailhead, located next to the yellow and black gate. Since this trail is technically a drive-able trail, the gate will sometimes be open for access to hunters based on the Tioga State Forest's hunting season rules, but is closed most of the time

The trail gradually heads downhill following red blazes along the way. After approximately 0.55-miles the Kinney Hollow Trail reaches a junction with the Hoadley Trail. The Kinney Hollow Trail takes a 90-degree angle right-hand turn and continues following the red blazes as it makes its way down the mountain along the creek, Kinney Hollow Run.

This recording does not follow Kinney Hollow Run for long before turning back. Technically, this trail reaches the Asaph/Ansonia valley below, but it's unclear if there's parking available at the base of the mountain.

Hikers can choose to continue hiking down the mountain and back to parking for a more difficult 3+ mile trek, or they can choose to turn around at a similar place that this recording does. Alternatively, for an interesting hike out to a bushwhack vista point, hikers can choose to explore the Hoadley Trail instead. The Hoadley Trail begins at the junction mentioned along this trail and it does not head down the mountain.

Dogs are allowed if leashed.

This trail follows red blazes.

Backpacking and dispersed/primitive camping is allowed off of this trail; however, I did not see any designated campsites. Please follow the Tioga State Forest rules when backpacking.

Hikers can find parking at the coordinates provided, which lies at the very end of Goodall Road. The parking lot is large enough to fit a dozen cars or more; however, this is not a very popular spot unless during deer season.

Winter Road Conditions
Tioga State Forest does not maintain this road during the winter. Do not attempt driving on this road without proper equipment including snow tires and/or chains unless the road is clear. High wind storms may also cause trees to fall across the road, making the road impassible. If you plan to visit during the winter, plan accordingly.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. 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...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
