Wonderful Biking Trail!

We have biked many trails (C&O Canal, Great Allegheny Passage, Greenbrier River Trail) and the Pine Creek Rail Trail is about as nice as you can get! We stayed and started just... read more

My wife & I rode an off road tandem, starting at the Jersey Shore, PA trailhead. There is ample parking there as well as a restroom building (there are a few other restroom buildings along the trail). There is also a supermarket adjacent to the east side of that parking lot in case you wanted to get some food to... More

We have biked many trails (C&O Canal, Great Allegheny Passage, Greenbrier River Trail) and the Pine Creek Rail Trail is about as nice as you can get! We stayed and started just North of Jersey Shore and rode to Wellsboro. Gorgeous scenery and wildlife along the trail. The Canyon concept is a little overblown as we really were not sure... More

If you enjoy the wilderness, this is a great day trip. Excellent views from the neighboring state parks and many trails to enjoy.

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
