The Unrivaled Canyon Hike Near Pittsburgh Everyone Should Take At Least Once

We’ve got some pretty spectacular natural scenery in Pittsburgh and not too far from the city. We don’t have a true canyon within easy driving distance of the city. (For that, you’d have to make the four-hour drive to Pine Greek Gorge.) However, we do have access to a breathtaking gorge that sits along the Great Gorge Trail near Pittsburgh. The gorge is arguably the highlight of the trail that’s brimming with natural beauty, including a waterfall.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
