If you're anywhere near Wellsboro, please make time to at least stop by and check the view of The Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. Is it anywhere near as large or impressive as *The* Grand Canyon? No, but if you're of the "these hills that they call mountains" mindset, you're missing out on a beautiful natural wonder. Even if you don't have... More

we visited our second time. It is always a bit overwhelming to view. This "green' canyon is a stark contract to the orange "Arizona" canyon. It's quieter, too.

It was exceptionally hot during our weekend visit but we were able to enjoy both biking and hiking in the canyon. The rail trail is easily biked and a wonderful way to see the park. We would recommend doing so before noon, as the canyon was cool and peaceful.

We hiked down the Turkey Path to the bottom of the Canyon. Nice walk down through the woods. The hike back up was not as pleasant but nice nevertheless. We had a black bear run across the lane in front of our truck on the way there about a mile from the trail head.

The overlooks have beautiful views. There were turkey buzzards and a red tail hawk soaring and riding the air currants. The gift shop is nice, a little pricey though. Restrooms were clean and staff helpful. There were very few people on the trails which was nice. A great place to hike, picnic and spend the day.
