Hike Leonard Harrison SP's Overlook Trail to Otter View

Leonard Harris Parking - Search Nearby - Added by Adam Ryan

Amazing view of The Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania that does not require a lot of hiking.

This is a simple .6 mile trail that starts around the bathrooms and loops past Otter View.

The trail itself is an easy hike. Otter View is a great spot for a family hike. By the bathrooms are different spots to get amazing views. The upper level is handicap accessible and there are steps down to a lower viewing level. Otter View could be reached with a stroller that is capable of trail use.

Make sure you plan some extra time to just sit back and take in the view. It is not as grand as the real Grand Canyons, but it's still pretty grand.

This was the first place my parents took me, as a kid that I remember, involving the outdoors. Can't wait to take my kids this summer.

Simple and Family Friendly

Great location to get some impressive views of the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. Great for all ages!
