Grand canyon of pa

The canyon is beautiful but in the winter you have limited access for Trails but the main part is open and you can see a great view of the river

Beautiful and peaceful. This is the third time that we have come here, the last time we got snowed upon.

Wonderful state park with amazing view of the PA Grand Canyon. Will definitely be back a little earlier in the season to catch peak fall colors but for early November we enjoyed it. Wonderful easy deck to safely walk and enjoy the views.

We were there November 4 and there was still plenty of fall color, but the peak color was likely a week or two earlier. It was a bright sunny afternoon and parts of the mountains still looked ablaze with color where the sun hit. Stunning views! You don't need to hike down to experience the grandeur, but there are different... More

We absolutely love this area. We camp nearby and find lots of things to do in the area. If you love the Pa Wilds, you'll love the area

Pictures do not explain the majestic feeling of viewing the PA Grand Canyon. The changing colors of the leaves were spectacular. Some of the trees were bare due to rain the previous week, but well worth the trip. The meandering river was beautiful.

We went to the PA Grand Canyon on October 20, 2016 then spent the night at the Canyon Motel in Wellsboro, PA. We normally only stay at Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn Express but decided to try the Canyon Motel after reading recent reviews on Trip Advisor. The motel was very clean and very reasonably priced. Leonard Harrison Park is... More

Absolutely breathtaking views of the Grand Canyon of PA. From the overlook we saw many bald eagles soaring back and forth. Just beautiful. It was raining a bit when we were there so we didn't take the trails down apparently not recommended in wet weather. There is a trail that leads to a waterfall. Next time we will definitely take...

A great place to view PA foliage. The location is easy to get to with facilities on site. The neighboring town of Wellsboro is charming and worth a visit also.

We hiked the Turkey Trail on both sides. The Turkey Trail on the one side was easy to follow and lots of good stairs. It was crowded but not a problem. However when we went to the other side to follow the Turkey Trail, the trees were supposed to have trail markings in blue. We were okay till we got... More
