Hiking

There's nothing quite like the quiet and solitude of a walk in the woods. The state parks, mountains, gorges, and country roads of the Pennsylvania Wilds provide the space and variety for every type of hiking adventure you can think of. Looking to surprise some elk? Walk softly, and you just might. Want to climb down a grand canyon? We have one of those, too. Lace up your boots and get ready to experience nature like you've never imagined it.

On the east rim of the Pine Creek Gorge (also known as the PA Grand Canyon), the 585-acre park has modern facilities, a visitor center and the most famous scenic views of the canyon. Call or go online for camping reservations. Rustic sites, some with electric are available. Hiking trails traverse very rugged terrain, passing close to many steep cliffs and may have slippery surfaces. Trails include the Turkey Path Trail, Overlook Trail and Pine Creek Trail. The Pine Creek Trail is a multi-use trail for hiking, bicycling and cross-country skiing. Horseback riding is only permitted on the dirt access road immediately beside the Pine Creek Trail for a nine-mile length from Ansonia to Tiadaghton. Trail users can view dramatic rock outcrops, waterfalls and wildlife like eagles, osprey, coyote, deer, wild turkey, heron, river otter, black bear and many others. About 250 acres are open to hunting and trapping. Common game species are deer, turkey, rabbit, pheasant and squirrel.
