Leonard Harrison State Park is a beautiful park with nice trails and some interesting viewpoints into the canyon. Although the park was not as spectacular as we expected.

Easy access for anyone of any age. We hiked down the Turkey Trail. It's definitely a challenge because much of the trail is damp, so be sure to wear good shoes and be physically able.

We were there on the coldest day of the season, so we only walked the .6 mile overlook trail. I want to come back on a better day

My wife and I arrived as the sun was coming out on a cloudy day. The views were astounding. A camera is a must.

This was such a beautiful spot to take in the scenery. Parking was free and ample. There was a food truck there in case we needed to purchase food or drink.

Overlook trail goes over to the tower but I never heard of Otter Trail. The trail to the bottom (harder of the 2) is the Turkey Path Trail.

Hiking suggestions - Wellsboro (0 Replies)
I'll be in Wellsboro for a few days and would love some hiking suggestions outside of Colton and Leonard Harrison State Park (will def be checking those out - just looking for others.) Will be staying right by Pine Creek Outfitters and looking for some additional hikes within 30-40 minutes from there. Preferably something on the easier side, that is around 5 miles or less. Thanks!
