The Minister Creek Loop Trail at Allegheny National Forest, Pennsylvania is a 4.5 - 6 mile loop hike that runs along Minister Creek and heads up to a lookout point before heading back to the trailhead.

We hiked in via the Fishermans Trail (not included in GPS map) along the creek and setup camp about 2/3 of the way down the dead end east/west trail off of the north loop. The next morning we did the entire north loop.

This was a first trip for a beginner in our group of three and he really enjoyed himself. The lookout point is a must see! White diamond shaped blazes are kind of sparse. Plenty of camp sites and large fire rings where the North Country Trail meets this.

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!
