This beautiful forest boasts trails to hike, bike and water fun too. One of the most astounding places in the state. Waterfalls, vistas, just relaxing places to sit and listen to the bountiful bird populations, view chipmunks, deer, bobcat, and even bear.

I biked the Pine Creek Rail Trail this Memorial Day weekend. Beautiful views and lots of history along the way. Started in Wellsboro PA and finished in Jersey Shore PA. A good weekend trip with lots of campsites along the way. Lots of places to hike apparently as well, but we didn't stop to hike. Even just walking along the... More

We were two couples who took two days to ride this trail. We started in Wellsborough and finished in Jersey Shore, overnighting at the Cedar Run Inn (see my review submitted for the Cedar Run Inn - fantastic B&B!). This trail is in the best shape I've ever seen for a crushed rock trail. We never hit even a single... More

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. :)
