Talk about a beautiful view! I only visited the east rim (Leonard Harrison Park) as we arrived later in the day. Sadly, we did not get to the other side to visit Colton Point State Park. If you are a hiker, bring your best shoes. I had only sandals so I did not do any hiking but you can hike... More

Do NOT click the directions button! It will take you to Forest City, PA NOT Tioga County where the Canyons are. These directions took us 2 hours out of our way!!!

This was a way stop on our epic motorcycle trip to the Finger Lakes of NY. This was easy to find (Leonard Harrison Park) and provided some excellent vistas! We were able to spend almost an hour just drinking in the beauty. We saw some turkey vultures soaring high above the valley floor and generally felt a connection with nature.... More

I have seen pictures online and in Pennsylvania Magazine and thought this would be a great trip for my husband and I. Wow!!!! It was better than I expected. Nature at it's best and great Vistas that does not require a hiking trip. Colton Point was one of them. Harrison another. Took lots of pictures with both our cameras. Be... More

Okay, so biking 17 miles from Ansonia to Blackwell thru the PA Grand Canyon with our 8 year old daughter was a bit ambitious. She quit at mile 1, mile 2, then mile 2.5. Finally, we bribed her to finish with promises of ice cream and souveniers and she made it. Our son, age 9, didn't have any problems. Beautiful,... More

Camping trip/ vacation. Stopped by here, Stayed in the State Park, did hiking and some other things. Can only imagine what it would look like in the fall. When hiking down, remember, you have to hike back up too. The way we went in, we passed a privately owned fire tower that offered view from top. Went back and tried... More

The sights and views of this nature beauty is just amazing. I couldn't stop gawking at the wonderful scenes of the Canyon. There are many things to do while visiting. It was a fun way to spend our extended weekend.

My GF planned a mystery Birthday Weekend for me centering on the Wellsboro, Pa region and the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania. I've heard a lot about this sight over the years, but had never seen it. We lived very near to the Grand Canyon of the East in Letchworth State Park so I wanted to see the other "Grand Canyon".... More

Lovely way to spend a crisp fall day, visiting the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania. If you a walker/hiker you will want to take the Turkey Trail for some beautiful views. You can start at Leonard Harrison Park and follow the trail for four and a half miles. Or you can just spend some time just taking in the views from... More
