Nice peaceful trail along the lake. Passed a few others out with dogs, but not much traffic. Gets a little hard to follow on some areas near the beach, but as long as you’re following the lake you’re fine. Came across a deer who wasn’t bothered by me at all.

A very nice and informative park ranger introduced my wife and I to the Bald Eagle Nesting area at the Wellsboro Pine Creek Rail Trail.(PA Grand Canyon). Awesome.

We backpacked the first third of the trail as an out and back with an overnight. A very pleasant forest hike with spectacular views at about the three mile mark. Some ascents and descents with quite a bit of flat in between. Most of the grades are gradual, so not a difficult hike.

Just a heads up, this trail is not in Leonard Harrison park. I believe it’s in tioga Park

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!

Nice hike. My family enjoyed it. My toddler even walked a lot of the way.

We attempted to ride the entire length of the trail while bicycle camping along the way. A damaged bike kept us from getting further than Blackwell, PA (starting at the trailhead near Wellsboro, PA), but that portion that we hit through the Natural Area of the "canyon" was great.
We stayed overnight at a camping area at the old CCC town of Tiadagton. Eagles, black bear, ducks, geese, white tailed deer and timber rattlesnakes were seen in plenty. The middle of the Natural Area did not see much in the way of other campers or even bikers during the two weekend August days that we were base camped there. The star gazing was awesome and the night sounds of the old town site kept us wondering since we were the only people camped there.
The town of Blackwell has a general store that should be a standard stop on the trail.
The ride was very easy as the trail is the best Rail Trail that I have ever ridden. And I have ridden on many. I would suggest this trail to anyone looking for a day trip up to a multi night adventure. Caution should be exercised with the numerous bears (storing food stuffs) and the number of rattlesnakes trail side.
This is one of PA Wilds best hidden gems.

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.

After the wheelchair accessible Overlook the rest of the loop runs next to the West Rim Trail. After leaving the Overlook area be sure to follow the markers for the loop trail heading north west or else you might wind up on the West Rim Trail heading north.

This is a relatively easy rail trail, mild grade heading north, downhill in the other direction. A complete down and back is about 100 miles.

Nice little loop trail. The lake is stunning if you go the right time of year. I live across the street so I hike this trail often with our dog.

Hiked 23 miles on this trail in one day. Was great. Rained for the first 3 hours but then was a beautiful day after. Really enjoyed the solitude. Saw several eagles and deer and a few other animals. Went up the turkey path on the Leonard Harrison side. Adds a little bit of uphill to an otherwise flat hike.

Bark Slide Trail is a short section (less than one mile) of the 25 km and 50 km Green Monster Trail System in Tioga County. Accessing the trailhead at its junction with Oil Well Hollow on the southern end is a challenge. Best bet is to park at the intersection of Baldwin Road and Spoor Hollow Rd, hike south on the well blazed Green Monster Trail, turn left on seldom used Canada Run Road for less than 100 yards, turn right on Oil Well Hollow (still on the GM Trail) and follow it up to Bark Slide Trail, which T's on the right. Now you're in for a real climb. The trail ascends 501 feet in just one-half mile. There are two switchbacks, but they're near the top, which gives some relief to your now tiring legs. There are two other accesses to this trail. It's possible to drive up Canada Run, but a 4-wheel drive is recommended, especially because you'll be fording the stream (no bridge) on the lower end. The other access is from the top. We call this he wimp route. Park at the intersection of Matson Road and Baldwin Road and hike Matson Trail to the top of Bark Slide Hollow. If you park a vehicle at the bottom of Canada Run Road you'll have made this an easy downhill hike of about three miles.
