Warren County Pennsylvania Hiking Trails

Minister Creek Trail

Allegheny National Forest

Length:  6.6 miles

This 10.8 kilometer (6.6 mile) trail begins at the Minister Creek Campground and forms a loop through the Minister Creek Undeveloped Area north of SR 666.

Watch the informational signs. This trail offers challenges to a wide range of skill levels as it climbs to the plateau within the Minister Creek Undeveloped Area. The Minister Creek Trail joins the North Country National Scenic Trail along the most northerly segment. 

The North Country National Scenic Trail then continues east, and the Minister Creek Trail turns south back towards the campground.

Fishing for small native brookies can be done in Minister Creek. Enjoy the wildlife viewing as you hike. The vegetation found in the Minister Creek Undeveloped Area supports wildlife typically associated with older trees and decaying vegetation. A well-used dispersed recreation campsite called Triple Forks Camp, is located where the two tributaries of Minister Creek join to become one stream. Part of the Minister Creek Trail is located on old railroad grades used in early logging efforts.

Camp overnight as you enjoy the Minister Creek Trail, or make a leisurely day trip through the Minister Creek Undeveloped Area.

The trail currently is marked with off-white diamonds. Forest trails policy prohibits the use of saddle, pack, or draft animals on hiking trails.


The trailhead parking lot is located on SR 666 west of Minister Creek Campground, 14.7 miles southwest of Sheffield, PA.
