Wellsboro - Pine Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Pennsylvania's Grand Canyon is less famous and more beautiful than some big hole in the ground out west. Fifty miles long and, in places, 1,000 feet deep, Pennsylvania's Grand Canyon is a green gorge cut by Pine Creek through the mountains of northern Pennsylvania. The Pine Creek Trail has given a new use to an abandoned railroad right-of-way, and in the process it has opened the door of the canyon to the public for the first time. When the railroad was running, the public had very little opportunity to travel through the canyon. The gorge is narrow, and the railroad bed was the only road through it.
Now, hikers, and bikers can travel through the canyon, enjoy nature, and forget about cars. This definitely is a leisurely ride. The surface is gravel, and it's fine for either road or mountain bikes. Deer frequently wander onto the trail, and when the water is deep enough, white-water rafters fill the creek. The trail is downhill from Ansonia to Blackwell, but the grade is negligible. Above all, this is an ideal ride when you just want to avoid dealing with cars. Dress warmly. Even in summer, mornings can be cool until the sun climbs above the rim of the canyon. The road surface is good."
