Caves In Pennsylvania

What are some of the best natural wonders in Pennsylvania?

Some of the natural wonders in Pennsylvania are a bit difficult to reach while others are a breeze. Mount Davis, for example, requires a short hike and leads to the highest point in Pennsylvania. If you’re a fan of waterfalls, make your way to Ohiopyle Falls State Park. It’s home to Cucumber Falls, a gorgeous waterfall that you can view from the top after taking a few steps from the parking lot. To see it from the base, walk down stairs. We all know that PA’s known for potholes, but did you know it’s also home to what might be the largest pothole in the country? Yep, just take a trip to Archbald State Park to see it.

What Pennsylvania hikes have the best views?

Lace up those hiking boots, because we’ve got a ton of hiking trails to explore. Pennsylvania hikes range from easy to difficult, and you’ll find amazing trails in all corners of the state. If you’re up for an epic challenge, set off on the Thousand Steps Trail. (Yep, you will climb 1,000 steps to the top then back down again.) The trail leads to the top of Jacks Mountain and some of the prettiest views in Pennsylvania. The 24-mile Three Rivers Heritage Trail through Pittsburgh offers stunning views of the city and its neighborhoods while Canyon Vista Trail in Worlds End State Park features jaw-dropping views of Loyalsock Creek Gorge.

What are some of the best places to explore in Pennsylvania?

We have so much to discover in Pennsylvania that we probably wouldn’t even uncover it all in our lifetime. That makes for a pretty interesting life, though, doesn’t it? If you’re a fan of the classic covered bridges of yesteryear, consider visiting seven of them during the fall (or any time of the year). Forksville Covered Bridge, Leatherman Covered Bridge, and Glessner Covered Bridge all look they belong on a postcard. Laurel Caverns, the deepest cave in Pennsylvania, is also a must visit, although it’s only open during the warmer months to allow the resident bats to hibernate in the winter. You can even go rappelling or spelunking at Laurel Caverns.
