Wear good hiking shoes, be prepared for rain, make sure you have a hiking stick and oh what a treat it will be. We tried to hike the turkey trail, one is easier than the other but both take you to amazing views of the canyon. The fall colors were breathtaking. We got lost during our hike and in no... More

We visited on a Saturday with the sole purpose of hiking the trails. Two trails are available at the visitor center. The Turkey Path is a 2 mile round trip down the hillside to the creek. It's marked frequently that it is dangerous. It was pouring rain but we were underterred. The waterfall part way down was worth it. The... More

We were hoping to see at least one eagle and we were thrilled to be able to watch an eagle sitting on a branch. For about an hour we viewed this magnificent bird through our binoculars. Several visitors came and we were able to point to where the eagle was resting. Oh, the center has short videos on the park... More

Beautiful, clear day to see Pine Creek at the bottom of the gorge. Because of my husband's bad back, we didn't hike down the mountain to the waterfall but we watched the two films about the park as compensation.

Small gift shop and little area to view stuffed animals... The view itself is great; and offers great photo ops... A couple of trails (i.e. Turkey Path) are recommended if you have time. Great waterfall view... And, keep an eye open for Eagles.

If you want to see the view with the least amount of trouble go to Leonard Harrison on the east rim of the canyon . Easy walk to viewing area and there are a few different viewpoints. Leonard Harrison Park has camping and just seems to be better maintained. They also have a gift shop. There is also a lot... More

This is a spectacular State Park. Clean and beautiful. Wonderful trails and great outdoor experience. We camped nearby and hiked into the park with our dogs. Just a breathtaking vista at daybreak with fog rising from the floor of the canyon.

Excellent views just a few yards from the parking lot with handicap access and a trail that leads to the bottom of the gorge for adventurous folks. Visit during October when the leaves are changing, and always keep your eyes out for eagles. Nice nature center and gift store. Public restroom available.

Beautiful Park! Came to Wellsboro to view the PA Grand Canyon and were surprised to find so many parks to visit. The views are breathtaking! We just loved looking for the Eagle and other birds. Look forward to coming back, maybe in the fall!

My family traveled here to view that PA Grand Canyon this summer. We had a great time! The views are beautiful everywhere you are. Be prepared to hike several difficult trails in order to see everything there is to see here, but it is well worth the adventure. The switchback trail down into the canyon is a must-do. You will...
