The Old Supply Connector Trail at Tioga State Forest in Gaines, Pennsylvania is a moderate 1.1-mile one-way trail that leads from Left Asaph Road to roughly 1-mile in on the Old Supply Trail.

This recording begins at the Old Supply Trail, so the elevation gain/loss for this hike is much different if you plan to hike in from the road; however, the trail itself is easy going down and moderate going up. The trail runs along mountain hillsides as it makes it way down (or up) the mountain ridge, but unfortunately there are no views. In the winter, you may get a glimpse of the surrounding mountains through the trees, but that's about it.

You can use this trail to make a loop with the Old Supply Trail for a 2.5 to 3-mile loop hike as well, but you'll need to hike back along Left Asaph Road.

Parking here is a bit tricky - there's enough space for one vehicle to pull off the road, with enough space for cars to drive by, at the trailhead - that's it. If there's already one car at the trailhead, you'll need to park at the main western trailhead parking lot for the Old Supply Trail (at the parking coordinates on that trail).

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

There are not many places to camp along this trail - and no obvious designated camping areas; however, if you plan to camp along this trail or the Old Supply Trail, it's do-able.

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. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I 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! ✌
