Our forecast calls for a very good season for 'leaf-peeping!' 

Looking for that idyllic fall foliage experience? 
The crisp autumn air, leaves crunching underfoot and mile-long vistas of brilliant yellows, reds and oranges make our region one of the very best places to experience the beauty of mother nature in her full fall splendor.

Cherry Springs night sky

The opportunities for sightseeing are endless. Marvel at the incomparable views overlooking the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon, spot wildlife and bald eagles as you hike or bike the Pine Creek Rail Trail, and at night visit Cherry Springs and gaze at the darkest night skies east of the Mississippi.
These are just a few of the outdoor delights awaiting you in Potter and Tioga Counties!
