The Greenwood Spur Trail is part of the 171 mile Mid State Trail.

Many short hikes are available in the park and on surrounding state forest lands. Two long distance trails begin in the park.

The Greenwood Spur of the Mid-State Trail leads past the Greenwood Forest Fire Lookout Tower and through Alan Seeger Natural Area where it intersects the Mid-State Trail. Along the way to the tower hikers can see charcoal hearths where wood was made into charcoal that fueled the Greenwood furnaces. Tioga State Forest provides cross-country hiking in the Ridge and Valley Region of Central Pennsylvania. This 171-mile ridge top route connects U.S. Route 22 at Water Street, Huntington County, and the West Rim Trail in the Tioga State Forest north of Blackwell, Tioga County.

Directions: From Huntingdon, PA, Take SR 26 northeast of Huntingdon approximately 15 - 20 miles to SR 305 east. SR 305 travels about 6 miles into the state park. Travel past the park office to the nature center. You may access the trail there.
