The Lambs Creek Graffiti Bridge Trail at Lambs Creek Recreation Area in Mansfield, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.7-mile out-and-back trail that leads hikers to a decommissioned and well-graffitied bridge that sits above the Tioga River.

This short trail is an old road that was once used to cross the Tioga River at Lambs Creek Recreation Area, but is now closed. Since its closure, local angst-y teens and other folk have decided to decorate the bridge with words of wisdom, Spongebob caricatures, and other colorful artsy designs.

While this is just a short trail, it's one of the more popular spots to hike near Mansfield PA due to the ease of access, views heading down to the bridge, and the colorful bridge itself.

Visitors can also access the Hike & Bike Trail at Lambs Creek, which connects to the bridge.

Visitors can find parking at the coordinates provided for a quick and easy hike to the bridge. Do not block the gate in case park personnel need to access the road; however, there should be enough space for a few cars to pull of the road near the entrance gate.

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

Biking is allowed on this trail and you can connect to the Hike & Bike Trail on the other side of the bridge.

Hikers can find apiaries along the trail - do not disturb these hives since their survival plays a critical role in keeping Lambs Creek's ecosystem in check.

Along the western side of the trail, as it makes its way downhill toward the bridge, are views of the surrounding mountains. This side of the trail is especially beautiful during the late Summer when Golden Rod fill the fields along the trail.

Took a short walk out to the graffiti bridge to find the recent rainfall and snow melt had washed debris and dirt onto the bridge. Most of the graffiti, including the Rick, is now under about an inch of dirt.

We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. 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.
