Nice walk in the woods on an old logging trail. Make sure you wear orange during hunting season. The trail has many downed trees that need to be stepped over but all in all, this is a nice hike.

Will not go back. First it was all logged and it was horrible to walk though with oil and ruts. Then as you keep going on the trail it ends to a roadway from the trucks going back and forth. Wasn’t sure which way to go so we turned around and walked back. Wasn’t worth our time. Looked like crap. Not great scenery with the trees cut and just laying there.

The person below is a liar. Theses trails are open and these are some of the most magnificent places in PA. Ignore him, he claims every trail in this region is closed in an effort to keep the places for those he deems as worthy

the log road does not end(It does from the recent logging in 2018) but the old log road crosses windfall run less than 1 mile in. You have to look for the old stone bridge abutments and cross there. It is mapped incorrectly here on this page

Getting there: the directions to parking and the point at which the hike begins on the app was wrong. We went from Main Street in Noxen and made a left onto School Lane and eventually veered right to Wilson which eventually turns into a dirt road which we followed until we found the parking lot. Parking/Trail Head: The trail head start noted on the app map was wrong. We didn’t see any parking where the app map was showing the trail start so we drove up the road and eventually came upon the official State Game Lands parking lot which has ample parking. We walked a little ways up the road from the parking lot and came upon the logging road which we followed all the way up to the woods. Hike/Trail For the first part of this hike up the logging road the scenery is beautiful but that’s tainted by the sound of automatic weapons fire in the distance. It was constant and a bit unnerving. After leaving the logging road we couldn’t find a path so it’s crucial you have your phone fully charged in order to follow the trail on the app. Our phones weren’t fully charged so we decided to go in 2 miles and turn around; we didn’t want to risk doing the loop and wandering onto private property especially with automatic weapons being fired. It was pretty but I’m not sure I’ll be returning to this one. I definitely wouldn’t do this one alone or without a phone, gps or a map to guide you. Also be ready to bush-wack your way through many parts. I’d also recommend bright orange to alert hunters of your presence.
