Approach


Follow directions in the "getting there" section. The northern trailhead starts at the junction between U.S. route 6 and P.A. route 287. The southern terminus is near the trailhead for the West Rim Trail.

Route Description


This route is almost 50 miles long and is usually done in 2-3 days if done in its' entirety. It is a part of the Rails to Trails program and there-for can be ridden in a day by bike. It is a very well maintained path for its' entirety in length. The trails' highlight is The Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania. Through the canyon it follows Pine Creek and never ascends the walls. Views are superb on most of the trail and wildlife is everywhere. The most scenic time to do this trail or part of it would be in the fall with the leaves changing. Mother nature presents some wonderful colors during that time of year and this trail makes them easily accessable to all. The trail doesn't only follow Pine Creek in the canyon, as it follows the run for the duration of the hike.

Essential Gear


Comfortable shoes, plenty of food and water, camera.
