1. Ricketts Glen State Park
Let's kick off our road trip at what just might be the best place in all of PA to see waterfalls - 21 of them, in fact. Ricketts Glen State Park boasts 21 named waterfalls, and you can see them all if you set off on the 7.2-mile Falls Trail. Or, if you're not up for the challenge of the longer trail, you can still see all the falls along the 3.2-mile Highland Trail. Bring food and water along, just in case of an emergency, and be prepared to take plenty of pictures, including of the 94-foot Ganoga Falls.
2. Winterland Winery
Now that you've had an invigorating hike, you're probably ready for a little relaxation as you sip a glass of wine, right? Our next stop takes us to Winterland Winery in Dushore. After you've tasted the wine, peruse the shop so you can stock up on your favorites and grab gifts for loved ones.
3. Worlds End State Park
Ready for another waterfall? Let's go to Worlds End State Park. There, you'll discover another trail - this one much shorter than either at Ricketts Glen State Park - that leads to several waterfalls. Put on your sturdiest shoes for the 1.3-mile hike along Double Run Nature Trail that can get slippery after a rainfall.
4. Pappy Jack’s Winery
Getting a bit tired yet? Now's the perfect time to head to our next winery. Nestled in a lush wooded area, Pappy Jack's Winery features a selection of sweet wines. Request a wine tasting and a tour when you're there, and don't forget to stock up on your favorite wines.
5. Pickering Winery
Finally, we're capping off our road trip at Pickering Winery. Tucked in the mountains, the picturesque winery features a generous assortment of wines. Try such favorites as Razzleberry, Apple Spice, and Cranberry. In fact, you might just be lucky enough to visit on a day when the winery offers its popular wine slushies.
