We were there in Oct, & the color of the leaves were beautiful. You could see for miles. We would have liked to have stayed a lot longer than our Tour bus allowed. There are some trails if you have time. Access is good & many different levels of observation decks. Short history movie beside the gift shop. Natures beauty... More

Our stop in January of 2016 was amazing. While all the trails were closed to hiking they outlook was open and the views were amazing. When we arrived the night before had dropped about 2-3 inches of snow on the ground and my kids had a blast tossing snowballs into the gorge. I can't explain how nice the views were... More

The views are lovely, but I wouldn't say they are jaw dropping or exceptional. The gorge at Letchworth State Park in upstate New York is far more impressive!

When in season, this is by far one of the best places in PA to see the colors in all their glory. Many locations to check out the views but ours by far was the main overlook. It is a decent walk, but if you don't need assistance, well worth it. Make sure the battery on your phone and or... More

We camped in Leonard Harrison State Park and rode bikes along the gorge. The path is packed gravel, easy riding. There are pit toilets along the trail and mile markers so you can pace your journey. There are numerous hiking trails along the gorge. If you like nature this is great. There is a tourist train ride (Tioga Central Rail)... More

A great ride - the 1st 18 miles are through breath taking gorge walls along a stream with wild life abound. The trail is very well maintained - we ride 20 to 40 miles a weekend training for the GAP trail and this is one of the nicest trails we have been on. The section after the gorge is dotted... More

We just got back from three days cycling along the Pine Creek Rail-to-Trail through the Grand Canyon of PA. We saw 4 bald eagles along our travels and lots of beautiful countryside. Day 1 we had Ansonia Outfitters shuttle us with our bikes from Ansonia to Blackwell (about 20 miles by bike) and rode back. Then spent the night at... More

Great trail to bike! Clean, friendly, rest rooms, picnic spots and lots to see. My head was on a swivel looking everywhere. We had Pine Creek Outfitters drive our SUV down the trail 20 miles so it was there waiting for us.
