We were up there a few years ago for my nephew's wedding.  Spent some time at the Grand Canyon the next day.  What a beautiful place!  Did you hike it?  Nature at its best!

My family and I have been there quite a few times at different times of the year and we enjoy it every time.  If you enjoyed it once, you'll be back.

My mom used to take us down there for picnics when I were a small tyke..  We were living in Addison so we weren't too far away..  Great scenery but it pales in comparison to Letchworth state park's gorge in my opinion..

First time there and we didn't do much hiking, the gal's butt's were sore from the ride out. Maybe we could start a place for people to post where they have gone so other's could enjoy this great country, if not in person, at least thru photos. Just a thought  :thumbs:

Very nice, I spent my honeymoon up there almost 20 years ago and it doesn't look like it has changed much.  :thumbs:

I didn't even know such a thing existed.  It looks beautiful.

 

Shows how ignorant I am, doesn't it?

Fyi - the state park on the other side of the gorge is nicer and has much larger viewing areas. The view is equally as good if not a little better as you can see further south. Also, if you enjoy cycling, the rail trail you can see at the bottom of the gorge is AWESOME. It stretches 70ish miles if memory serves correctly, from just outside Wellsboro down to Jersey Shore (PA)

We were up there at a cabin a few years ago. The cabin is up on a ridge over looking Pine Creek. I tried to take the old driveway up to the cabin, but it was juust to steep. All wheel drive and good tires, it would get to a certain point then slide back down. I finally gave up and used the newer drive.

 We had a guy come from michagan to get our one dozer and he ws saying on the phone coming in like what are all these mountains called and we just said there not mountains there hills.  Actually i was kinda disappointed when i first seen the pa grand canyon cause in only a hilly woods with a crick at the bottom
