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 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 / Admin. 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. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
