Fun descents, long climbs, and fine trail are just a few of the outstanding features of this ride. Located in the Tioga State Forest, the ride covers some of the historical logging grades and pathways of the timber era. The Grand Canyon is a natural feat of glacial deposition, which caused the sharp bend in the flow of the Pine Creek. The trailhead was named after Henry Colton, who was a supervising lumberman in the late 1800s. The park across the gorge was named after Leonard Harrison, who devoted his time and money to developing a public picnic and recreation area on the precipitous east rim lookout. He later gave the property to the state which is now maintained by the park service. Highlights: the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania with superior views; long descents and climbs; fishing and whitewater boating along Pine Creek; horseback rides; Colton Point State Park. Tread: a great woodland mix of singletrack, old woods roads, and Forest Service roads linked with two minor sections of paved road.
