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

The bike trail was very pretty, very leisurely and also very easy! The grade was 1% downhill, so just enough to make you think you were working, but not enough to wear out an old guy. We did 18.3 miles down to Blackwell from Ansonia. The ride gives you a very good feel for the Pennsylvania wilderness; tall trees, very... More

We were camping at Lyman Run State park and spent a day here. Before visiting we prepped out teenagers by telling them not to expect the Grand Canyon Arizona type rock views that it was a vast valley with trees. The park trails were great. We had a great time exploring! Be aware the phone reception is spotting in this... More

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
