We did the West Rim overlook, and biked the Pine Creek Trail. Kids loved it (ages 9, 12 & 14). Bike trail is very flat - very easy to travel with kids (got little to no complaining).

What an incredible view and experience! We saw the "Canyon" from the observation overlooks at Leonard Harrison State Park. It was gorgeous and relaxing. To top it off, hawks and turkey vultures kept soaring all around us - above, below, at eye level. You could almost reach out and touch them. Well worth your time if you anywhere near the... More

It's such a pleasure to enjoy scenery in the State I live in. This place by far is the best I've visited to date. The view is breathtaking. The spot we went to is off of 44. We got lost at first, had to ask for directions. We were warned that the 6 mile strecth in was gravel road (which... More

This was a very nice spot to take a few minutes at. There were trails to hike but we did not have the time. Got a nice view from the East Rim. Only complaint - the "smoker signs/ash trays" all along the viewing area. Without the bikers smoking all over the place - it would have been a five star... More

You definitely need a few days to explore this magnificent wonder! I recommend the helcopter ride! Amazing..the ONLY way to truly see it! BUT make sure you know EXACTLY which side of the Canyon and which airport youre going to! We ended up at the West side and we needed to be on the South! 4 hours out of our... More

We saw the billboard advertising for it and did a quick google search to see. It was easy enough to get to, a bit of a long windy road but, very pretty. There is a nice parking lot with amenities, and a gift shop...there are multiple overlook areas at various points, and a trail down into the gorge (we did... More

Enjoyed everything about this trip. Hiking trials are great. Some are more challenging then others. Great area for biking also. We did not do this, but many of the trails were traveled by cyclist.

Have visited many times, but had not visited since !993. I took my family for the hike on the Turkey trail and we had a great time. At the bottom, we played in Pine Creek for about an hour. The hike back up was a little more difficult, but it was fine. the view are great. It was a nice... More

Stayed overnight in Williamsport. Drove over to Jersey Shore, PA and started the drive north along Pine Creek up to Leonard Harrison State Park. Beautiful vistas and very nice facilities. Took the Turkey Path trail down to the river - well maintained trail - allowed for beautiful, peaceful, enjoyment of nature! The walk back up could be a little more... More
