The Pinchot Trail is a 23-mile (37 km) hiking trail in Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania.[1]

Located in the Lackawanna State Forest, it traverses the Pocono Plateau and is considered a challenging, yet scenic, hike.

The trail is marked by orange blazes. The entire trail could be hiked in a single day by an experienced hiker in good physical condition, although multi-day hikers may camp overnight along the trail. There are several connector trails for short one-day side trips.
