I thought it was going to be just bigger, and maybe cooler?? But it was a great stop and free attraction with friendly folks who work there... cute little museum about engineering and nature.. the bridge was a 3 minute walk... the trails were way too difficult for older people...

Thank you for your review, I'm sorry you weren't impressed with the skywalk and the scenery from the partial glass overlook at the end. The skywalk goes out 624 feet, at a height of 225 feet into the Kinzua Gorge. Happy to hear staff was friendly and accommodating. There is a second trail the staff should have mentioned-the General Kane... More

We only had half day allocated to a rather substantial national park, so we stopped at the visitor center for recommendations on maximizing our experience. In about a 5 - 10 minute discussion, the woman we spoke with had highlighted a map for us to follow that would allow... More

A day trip for us turned into a 14-hour excursion because there is more to see than we thought! The rangers are all very helpful and friendly. Trails were appropriate to our family and the scenery is astounding. There are many places to stop for a meal, to stay the night, and there is an abundance of history in the... More

I came here with a friend to explore and to take photographs. We were so pleased with the view, the history of the place and how fun it was to walk around in the valley where all the wreckage was. The walk down is fine but going back up is a little bit of hike although there is a path.

We went for a drive and although it was an overcast, rainy day, it was still so beautiful. There are cabins for rent. Places for tent camping and RV hookup. There is a store in the park and a laundry room. There are shower facilities as well.

I was on business in Bradford, PA, and wanted to stop to get some information before I left the area. I want to thank Claudia for taking the time, listening to my interest and providing me the appropriate information. I left with the right information to experience the ANF they way we'd like to, hiking and biking. Thanks!!

I made this my first stop in the area. The bureau is housed in the old post office building which is cool. I had just planned to browse the brochures and pick up what looked interesting, but a woman at her desk came out to greet me with a big smile. She asked the right questions to determine my interests... More

We did this 29-mile scenic drive on October 19th. Unfortunately, it was really past prime foliage time; it was a nice drive, but we assume it would've been better the weekend before. We stopped at two great overlooks-- Rimrock Overlook and Jakes Rocks, and got wonderful views and some nice photos!
