In the area of Pine Creek Gorge several times a year and it is always a wonderful place to visit. Nice hiking and biking trails on the rail trail. Take time and enjoy God's wonderful work.

It might take hour to get from somewhere down inside the canyon (where pine creek flows) to the upper rim of the canyon to one of the scenic overlooks (where the views are great). Just two different views of the same thing.
