On the east rim of the canyon, the 585-acre Leonard Harrison State Park has modern facilities, a visitor center and the most famous scenic views of the canyon. On the other side of the canyon is Colton Point State Park. Leonard Harrison State Park is featured in a 30-minute video created in partnership with the Pennsylvania Cable Network, which is available for purchase at their Web site. www.pcntv.com/stateparks.html

Well maintained trail that runs along some beautiful waterfalls.

Beautiful! I could have sat there for hours taking it all in. We went on Memorial Day but it was not very busy, it was raining in the morning, which was probably a factor. Took the trail to the West Rim Trail for a longer hike and camped at the Leonard Harrison campsite. The trail runs along the rim of the canyon so it was fairly flat. A must see!

Hiked this trail on the last day of summer. I was a nice hike down to the creek bed. On the way up the college kids had moved in and were "playing" under the water falls. Not so peaceful for me but I'm sure fun for them.

This is a great place to hike, especially in the Fall season. Colten Point is a more rugged trail, I recommend proper hiking shoes.

Was relatively busy on weekend we were there, passing on certain parts of the trial requires one group to stop to allow the other to pass. Well defined path with stairs and bridges where needed. Numerous individuals depart the path for shortcuts and to get to the falls that are along the way. Lots of young children and dogs, most were well behaved.

Not as treacherous as everyone says. The wood decking can be slippery when wet, so just take your time and wear good shoes. Beautiful cascading water falls along the majority of the trail.

Wheelchair friendly for the first bit of the hike up to the view overlook. The rest of the trail follows through the woods and is a great easy hike mostly flat Terrain.

Awesome Trail with a 70-foot cascading waterfall half a mile down. The trail itself comes with a warning, need to have proper gear. Trail is about a foot and a half wide with very steep drop-off on one side and is a zigzag down the side of the mountain. Treacherous is the word that comes to mind but totally worth it for the view. Great hike.

There are two trails at the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon: Otter View Trail and Turkey Trail. Otter View is a .6 mile loop with some steep sections. It features a scenic overlook that shows the canyon and a pretty cool abandoned incinerator in the woods. This trail is safe for kids and dogs. Turkey Trail is a 1 mile out and back (2 miles total) that goes to Pine Creek at the bottom of the gorge. It features many gorgeous waterfalls. I would not recommend taking children or dogs on this trail due to some very steep sections near cliffs. My boyfriend and I had a blast on this trail, however!
