Tioga County is home to Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon. Surrounded by 165,000 acres of the state forest, the Gorge is a truly pristine area to visit. Outdoor activities abound: horseback riding, canoeing, rafting, hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, fishing, hunting and more!
Cyclists love the Pine Creek Rail Trail voted one of the “10 great places to take a bike tour” by USA Today. This 62 plus-mile long trail, with a two percent grade over its entire length, travels through the Gorge. The trail is a hard-packed gravel surface available to hikers and bikers with a section just for the equestrians. For a taste of the frontier, take a comfortable two-hour covered wagon ride with padded seats, rubber tires and shock absorbers as you enjoy the flora and fauna and learn the heritage of the Pine Creek Gorge.
Train buffs and others love our historic train excursion on a diesel-powered train that travels an actual working rail-line traversing wetland areas and terrific birding sites before stopping at Hammond Lake, before making the return trip to Wellsboro. Special event trains happen periodically throughout the season.
Tioga County is also home to seven lakes for fishing, swimming and water sports.
Along with beautiful landscapes, you can enjoy festivals and arts, scenic driving tours, unique shopping and dining.
Tioga County has lodging to meet your wants and needs, but it’s a good idea to make reservations before visiting, since availability may be limited during popular visiting times such as fall foliage season. Checking on availability ahead of time is easy by visiting: www.visittiogapa.com/book.
