Great trail with plenty of camp sites and water. Muddy on the Minister side, recommend starting on the Kellettville side. Actual trail length was 21.5 miles.

North Country Trail in Allegheny National Forest is just an amazing trail. This section is one of my favorites.

Description says Henry's Mill to Kelletville, but map starts in Minister, thats incorrect (tho doable on Minister Creek Trail)

First to Review

Hiked from Kellettville to Henry's Mills over a span of 2 days as part of the Allegheny 100 Challenge. This is a beautiful section of trail with numerous bridge crossings. The section that leads down to Minister Creek was pretty muddy on the day we did it. I highly recommend this trail and would do it again.
