What are the best fall day trips in Pennsylvania?
If you’re looking for things to do in the fall in Pennsylvania, you can’t go wrong by visiting one of the state parks. Locust Lake State Park in Barnesville, for example, provides the perfect backdrop for a day outdoors. It features a gorgeous lake framed by the colors of fall, where you can kayak, canoe, or boat. You’ll find scenic trails, too. Another top spot to spend a fall day – and to enjoy the Pennsylvania fall foliage – is Raystown Lake in Huntingdon County.
Where are the best places to see fall foliage in Pennsylvania?
Drinking in the fall colors of Pennsylvania is easy. You can even just go for a walk to admire the fall foliage. For an unforgettable adventure, head over to Kinzua Bridge Skywalk. The 624-foot bridge (or what remains of it) is flanked by trees, which transform into a colorful canvas during the autumn. At the end of the skywalk, you can look straight down – 301 feet – to the forest floor. Pair leaf peeping with a delicious meal at The Allegheny Grille in Foxburg. The charming restaurant sits right on the Allegheny River and boasts stellar views of the fall foliage.
Which hiking trails in Pennsylvania are best in the fall?
One of the best thing to do in fall in Pennsylvania is to go on a scenic hike, which also allows you to do a bit of leaf peeping. If you want to see some of the very best views in the state, follow the Turkey Path Trail at Leonard Harrison State Park in Wellsboro. The meandering trail promises jaw-dropping views of Pine Creek Gorge (The Grand Canyon of PA). Pulpit Rock Loop Trail in Hamburg, also features some pretty amazing autumn views. The hike culminates at a scenic overlook.
