The West Rim Logging Connector Trail at Tioga State Forest near Blackwell, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.5-mile out-and-back trail that follows a logging road that connects to the West Rim Trail.

The hike begins at the yellow service gate and follows the logging road, heading east, toward Pine Creek Gorge. Hikers can continue down the logging road for a quiet day-hike considering not many folks come out to hike the random logging roads at Tioga State Forest. This trail really has nothing to see along the way, but it's best used to connect with the West Rim Trail.

Dogs are allowed if leashed.

Hikers will find a small parking turnout near the gate. Do not block the yellow entry gate.

Backpacking and Camping
Camping is technically allowed off-trail, but there are no designated campsites or fire rings. Your best bet is to find a campsite along the West Rim Trail instead. Please follow all state forest rules and regulations when backcountry / primitive / dispersed camping.

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! ✌
