The views of the PA Grand Canyon from this park are not to be missed! There are lots of points to see the canyon, and take photos. Restrooms are clean, staff is very helpful.

Magnificient view of the PA Canyon. The Turkey Path is fun to do. We stayed at the campground besides the Canyon. Very clean. The personnel is quite friendly and helpful. I'll go back for sure.

We went over Labor Day weekend 2013 and enjoyed the views. There is also a small nature center with stuffed species of animals that are indigenous to the area as well as a gift shop. The trails are well marked at the top. My husband and I didn't venture any further than the observation area on top, so I can't... More

Very scenic and bucolic. A short drive out of Wellsboro, the Park is a quiet peaceful spot which has some of the best scenery in PA.

Watch your signs and be aware that you must be physically fit for some of these trails. Enjoy the views for easy walk-up Vista.

Plan a trip to see it if you can. It is well worth the experience. They say the best time is in the fall to see the colors but, believe me, it is worth a trip.
