Allegheny National Forest - Minister Creek Trail Reviews

My husband and I hiked part of this trail south and middle loop in the morning it was challenging at first because did the south trAil and then the middle trail but then was fine. I would suggest the opposite. I love the rock formations on the south loop. We will go back and camp while doing the entire loop. The campground at beginning is small but clean.

Just got back from an awesome weekend on the trail. Took a group of scouts did the whole loop on Saturday (big loop). The southern side is a killer and is definitley what makes it rated moderate to difficult.
