Beautiful park with amazing views. Easy to drive to from town. Several spots to take in the scenery. Quite a few trails to explore. We saw a few deer, not sure what else lives in the forest.

We loved our visit to the Grand Canyon of PA. This was the first time that we were here and will definitely be back. We appreciate the long and short trail options as we were travelling with children.

I had hear about Great Canyon of the east grownup. But to get to see it so beautiful. Now I will have to go back in fall colors someday.

This state park is located on the east rim of the PA Grand Canyon. The is a small Visitor's Center that shows a very informative video about the area. It also has the best view of the Canyon. If you are near Wellsboro, this is the place to go to see the Canyon.

The park is only 15-20 minutes from town of Wellsboro where my husband and I were staying. We loved the view and are looking forward to going back when the leaves change!

We watched the sunset from the Harrison State Park Overlook, and it was breath-taking! Harrison is a beautifully maintained state park with great hiking and camping. And the sunset was unforgettable!

What a beautiful place... and right here in Pennsylvania! Even if you don't "hike a trail," you can get gorgeous views just at the starting point. We didn't have the proper footwear for the Turkey trail, so we did the gentler trail, which was perfect for us in our sneakers. We saw some deer, which for some reason, thrilled us... More

The views were spectacular at this lovely park. The Turkey trail was a tough but fun hike. On the way back up, we appreciated the benches strategically located at the switchbacks! Much fun.

Cannot do a lot of walking and this was just perfect for seeing the view of the canyon. Very easy to get to.
