"Wellsboro, home of PA's Grand Canyon" Wellsboro by jasta_305

Wellsboro Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 44 photos

We stopped off on our way home from Corning, NY. Since it was a spontaneous side trip we didnt really know the exact location of the overlook, so it took some driving and stopping and (asking for directions). (The "Grand Canyon" is located about 10 miles from Wellsboro) When we finally got there it really was very scenic, not quite as grand as the real one- but definately worth a look if your in the area.

On the way home we stumbled across a little antique shop, - and although the shop itself wasnt open, the lawn was peppered with these stange metal sculptures. These creatures are quite creative. Unfortunuatly I cant tell you how to get there, but I know it was off a main road heading out of Wellsboro. (rt. 6?) Maybe a couple miles out of the town.

    A great place for a long bike ride. It is nature's best with eagles and bear sometimes near the trail and of course deer.


“the rewards of the journey far outweigh the risk of leaving the harbor...”
