Excellent hiking

Great trails and views! A must see if you're in the area. We like the switchback trail down to the water. There is a nice path for bikes, as well.

We saw the fascinating gorge from the top, at Leonard Harrison State Park and Colton Point State Park; then we were glad we took the opportunity to explore the bottom of the gorge. We rented bikes, and biked about 3 hours round-trip on this easy trail. My husband and I don't get to bike very much; we found riding this... More

Never realized how beautiful Pennsylvania was till we experienced this area. Founded on the logging industry years ago the results today (reforestation) and the view were breathtaking. Must see.

Pine Creek Gorge is often called the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania. After finally seeing it, I have to say I don't care for that moniker at all. Don't misunderstand as that is not meant as a negative! Pine Creek Gorge is very different from the Grand Canyon in that it truly is a showcase for the geology and natural beauty... More

"Turkey Trail" is NOT for the birds. My heart was racing after going further & further down the mountain's steep side. Slow and steady should be your pace. Be mindful of your footing & placement. Please wear comfortable clothing & footwear. The waterfall is amazing as is the river at the end! Mother nature at her best. 👍

Took a 3-day fall road trip with 6 year old granddaughter and this was our first big stop. Can't even describe how gorgeous on a lovely stunning fall day after a morning of rain. Also, stopped at the AnimalLand gift shop where the owner is a big-hearted rescuer of cats left abandoned. The parking is hit and miss at the... More

If you want some great picture opportunities, I highly recommend stopping by for a visit. Bring your family, they have an education room, gift shop, and a maple stand to try some tasty maple products. Allow at least 2 hours if you want to walk the waterfall trail. :)

My wife and I (55+) traveled this Columbus Day weekend to see the fall leaves around the area. We chose the Leonard Harrison State Park based on recommendations from TripAdvisor. We weren't disappointed! Leafs were at 80-90% peak. Unfortunately it was overcast, but we went with it and took a little hike to Otter View. Otter View was spectacular although... More

We live in PA and have never been to the PA Grand Canyon. We decided to take a little time to drive to the area of Wellsboro, PA and explore. We are so happy that we did! Our objective for this trip was to explore what the PA Grand Canyon had to offer and plan a trip in the spring... More

Up for the weekend on our Harleys, seven of us. What a beautiful place! Never experienced anything quite like it. You just want to sit there and look out over the railing and not talk, taking in all the beauty of the mountains.
