Both are great, but I put "Pine Creek Gorge" into google maps and ended up an hour away from my destination. There are some great areas for swimming and kayaking in Pine Creek Gorge. The views are amazing from the PA grand Canyon. If you're trying to get to PA grand canyon, it's actually located in Colton Point State Park.

Words fail to describe this beauty. Miles of mountains surround a river for a almost never ending view of nature. Many different types animals roam freely including eagles and black bears. There are many ways to see the gorge. Two parks are within the gorge; the Colton state park is a park features several viewing areas to look out into... More

All of the online information called this PA's Grand Canyon. While there is a nice gorge it in no way resembled what I saw online. A large natural area comprised of two parks with a large gorge. We hiked to find the waterfall. Very steep and narrow winding path with wet rock and composting leaves. Be prepared and be careful.... More

The manager of our hotel suggested we check out the Pine Creek area for a nice hike. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate, but we will definitely be back to enjoy this place in the future. I was immediately sold on the bike trail that extends a good distance (I believe around 60 miles or so) along the creek. The manager... More

We took a family walk with three grandkids 4 and under. Nice gentle walk with river viewso and interesting bridges. Watched rafters and cancers in the water, it looked like a lot of fun.

We were there in Oct, & the color of the leaves were beautiful. You could see for miles. We would have liked to have stayed a lot longer than our Tour bus allowed. There are some trails if you have time. Access is good & many different levels of observation decks. Short history movie beside the gift shop. Natures beauty... More

Our stop in January of 2016 was amazing. While all the trails were closed to hiking they outlook was open and the views were amazing. When we arrived the night before had dropped about 2-3 inches of snow on the ground and my kids had a blast tossing snowballs into the gorge. I can't explain how nice the views were... More

The views are lovely, but I wouldn't say they are jaw dropping or exceptional. The gorge at Letchworth State Park in upstate New York is far more impressive!

When in season, this is by far one of the best places in PA to see the colors in all their glory. Many locations to check out the views but ours by far was the main overlook. It is a decent walk, but if you don't need assistance, well worth it. Make sure the battery on your phone and or... More
