    Pine Creek Gorge (Pennsylvania Grand Canyon)

    PA Canyon Wellsboro PA 16901

    (570) 724-0635 | visittiogapa.com/canyon.html

    The Pine Creek Gorge, almost 50 miles long and over 1,000 feet deep, is known as the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania. It offers spectacular views, abundant wildlife and beautiful foliage that promise a brilliant fall display of deep reds, yellows and purples in early October. Be sure to make a stop in the quaint town of Wellsboro where you'll see gas-lit streets and Victorian mansions that date back to the early 1800s. The drive along the west rim of the gorge provides beautiful scenery and an impressive density of northern PA birds and other wildlife. Migratory and breeding birds that can be seen include woodpeckers, mourning and black-and-white warblers, wild turkey, and wood and hermit thrushes.

    Directions: To reach Leonard Harrison State Park, follow 660 West of Wellsboro to the east rim of the canyon (approximately 12 miles). To see the canyon from Colton Point State Park, follow Route 6 West of Wellsboro. The entrance to the park is along Route 6 in Ansonia (approximately 12 miles).
