The Tioga Lake Spillway Trail at the Tioga-Hammond Lakes Recreation Area is an easy 0.4-mile out-and-back trail that follows the downstream channel of the Tioga River as it spills out of the Tioga Lake dam.
This short and flat trail is mostly popular among local fisherman, but the loosely-defined trail that runs along Tioga River here is a nice walk along the water.
Hikers can find parking at the coordinates provided. The lot is large enough to fit about one dozen vehicles.
Fishing is permitted given you have an in-state or out-of-state PA fishing license. Fisherman should be warned that signage at the parking area indicates that water can be released from the dam at any time with no prior warning, so fish in the river at your own risk.
This trail also has a kayak launch located directly across from the parking lot.
Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out.
Visitors can find a restroom at the end of this road, next to the Hammond Lake Overlook.
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! ✌
