Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania Grand Canyon is often described as The Crown Jewel of Pennsylvania". The Pine Creek Gorge winds its way through the beautiful PA wilderness.

The Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania is a 47-mile gorge carved into the Allegheny Plateau by Pine Creek in north-central Pennsylvania. It sits in about 160,000 acres of the Tioga State Forest. The canyon begins south of Ansonia, near Wellsboro, along U.S. Route 6 and continues south.

In 1968, the Canyon was recognized for its uniqueness and was designated a Natural National Landmark by the federal government.

Kayaking and fishing are available at the bottom and Leonard Harrison State Park and Colton Point State Park are on opposite sides of the canyon. Both parks offer hiking trails and camping facilities.
