Re: pa grand canyon

Galeton Fireworks, Colton Point SP, Leonard Harrison SP, Maybe do the Turkey Path at Harrison SP, the rail trail on a bike from Ansonia on down is pretty. Barbour Rocks Trail off Colton Point Road is easy and a nice vista.

Re: pa grand canyon

The Galeton Fireworks are great and should not be missed. If you like walking around town Wellsboro is nice and the Pa lumber museum is not far on RT 6.

Re: pa grand canyon

It's been since the 70's since I've been up there but if canoeing or kayaking is your thing you’re in the right spot, hang out at Barbour’s Bend on Pine Creek and watch the canoes and kayaks come through and count the number that flip over. You could fish anywhere on the creek or Slate Run is good (I believed its delayed harvest). If hiking great trails all around. Two good trails are the West Rim Trail and the Black Forest Trail. I’ve hiked on the Black Trail Forest Trail and I believe, except for the AT is one of the nicest trails in PA. Go to “Pine Creek Outfitters” to get some other ideas.

Enjoy life and take a hike on the AT.

Yes. Hyner is a bit of a ride from the grand canyon but the hanggliders are something to see. We go there every year on Labor Day weekend just to watch them. We sit for hours and just watch. It is really cool.

I'm assuming he means the Owassee Rapids. Which isn't as big a deal as it used to be.

Re: pa grand canyon

I believe it was called Barbours Bend when I went through. But I could be wrong. I was a little young back in those days.

Enjoy life and take a hike on the AT.

Did the structure of the rapids change? Or did people get better boats?

I've boated through there. We stayed left and had no problem at all. It looked a lot more bouncy on river right, but not THAT bad.
