Pinchot Trail

5.6 Miles Easy

Pinchot State Forest
Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania

1

The Pinchot Trail in Pinchot State Forest, PA, is a 26 mile trail that leads through Pinchot State Forest and Lackawanna State Park. This small 5.6 mile out-and-back section of the trail starts by the designated parking area on the state forest's map and heads west along the road before heading further into the forest.

The trail itself is mostly flat while you hike through tall rhododendrons, open areas, and young forests.

We saw a decent amount of cars parked by the trailhead, but we didn't see anyone on the trail, so it's a fairly secluded place once you're out in the woods.

Camping: Camping can be found scarcely off of the trail after about 1 mile into the hike - from the trailhead. Fire pits can be seen from the trail, but the ground can be rocky which makes setting up tents somewhat difficult.

Parking: This recording starts off at the designated parking area on the Lackawanna State Park map, but the parking directions will bring you to a closer parking lot without having to hike down the road. Coordinates for the main parking lot.
