Descent

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.

Pets
Dogs are allowed if leashed.

Blazes
This trail follows red blazes.

Camping
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.

Parking
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.
