Most of us would probably agree that Pine Creek Gorge, more commonly known as the Grand Canyon of PA, ranks as one of the most stunning natural wonders in the state. We can drink in stunning views of the canyon from Leonard Harrison State Park or Colton Point State Park, both of which feature trails that offer views from the rim and from the canyon floor. However, for an epic, multi-day adventure, we can follow the Pine Creek Rail Trail in Pennsylvania.
Have you hiked all or part of the Pine Creek Rail Trail in Pennsylvania? Do you have advice for other hikers? Share your experience in the comments! If you prefer a shorter trail that begins at the top of the canyon and takes you to the bottom, set off on the Turkey Path Trail.
