Thousand Steps Trail (aka 1000 Steps Trail) to Dinky Shed is an out-and-back trail located near Mapleton, Pennsylvania.

The 1000 Steps Trail is part of the Standing Stone Trail as it travels up Jack's Mountain in State Game Lands Number 112.  There happens to be 1,037 steps but who's counting!  This is a great workout hike with many great views and an interesting piece of history if you hang a left at the top and check out the Dinky Shed which was a maintenance facility for dinky trains built 1938. This trail is dog friendly, but pups must be on-leash.
