Part of MST Section 18, km 0.92 to 7.13 NB (5.69 KM), on private property in Duncan Twp, Tioga County, is closed indefinitely due to heavy construction activity. (This is the same section that had the Oct 1-Jan 15 hunting season closure.) As during hunting season hikers will need to detour along SR 3009 through downtown Antrim, turning at the stone church to continue to follow SR 3009. We appreciate your understanding during this time and it is not known when the trail will be able to be reopened. (07/12)
Relocation north from Sand Run Falls through Dyke Creek is now blazed. Still unblazed roads north from State Forest for now. MST now passes PARKING on State Forest at Arnot Road 4 km east of former location with no parking by private land. Route is 6.4 km longer for the thru hiker.
Gas drilling and pipeline work is under way on private land in this section. At this time we think any interruptions in the route will be short term in nature and able to be detoured using the nearest road. Please download the current maps. Any particular concerns contact
