Official App of the Mid State Trail Association

Pennsylvania's Mid State Trail is a hike of almost 330 miles (530 km), and offers dramatic views, rocky ridgelines, high plateaus, rolling hills, and a variety of other spectacular natural features. The trail crosses the entire state, from the border with New York in the north, to the border with Maryland in the south. The trail traverses many unique natural areas, including the Allegheny Mountains and the Northern Tier, a region of the trail shaped by the retreat of ancient glaciers.

How can I get it?

The Mid State Trail map is available as an in-app purchase in our Guthook Guides app, a free download from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

Our iOS and Android apps do differ slightly in their appearance. However, the majority of their features remain the same, and they access the same trail guide data.

The Mid State Trail (MST) is an old-fashioned wilderness footpath across Pennsylvania from Bedford County in the south to Tioga County in the north. Features of the MST are its many views and side trails, its sense of isolation and remoteness, and its use of metric measure.

Initial trail clearing began in 1969 under the auspices of Penn State Outing Club. The Mid State Trail Association (MSTA) is an organization of trail overseers and others formed in 1982 and dedicated to the completion, maintenance, and preservation of the Mid State Trail System.

Mid State Trail Association

The Mid State Trail was created to foster natural, spiritual experiences, so that all may enjoy a greater respect for nature and therefore protect nature for future generations. The Mid State Trail Association seeks out remote, quiet natural corridors for placing the Mid State Trail, constructs and maintains only footpaths, and acts to protect the quiet, wild and scenic, natural and cultural resources of the corridor through which the trail passes.

Atlas Guides has partnered with the Mid State Trail Association to create, improve, and update the official Mid State Trail app.
