Barbour Rock Accessible Trail

Barbour Rock Accessible Trail

1.3 Miles Easy

Tioga State Forest
Wellsboro, Pennsylvania


The Barbour Rock Handicap Trail at Tioga State Forest in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania is an easy 1.3-mile out-and-back accessible trail that leads out to two amazing lookout points high above the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania.

The trail is a gradual-grade stone-crushed path that meanders through the woods of Tioga State Forest within the Pine Creek Gorge Natural Area. The hike itself is easy since the elevation gain is very gradual throughout the entire trail.

Parking: Parking can be found at the trailhead or across the street in either lot.

Pets: Leashed dogs are allowed and their waste must be carried out.

Warning: Some lookout points along Pine Creek Gorge have very steep cliffs and no fencing. Hike at your own risk.

Lookout Point: The destination of this hike is the lookout points along the rim of Pine Creek Gorge (Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania). The first lookout point is an accessible lookout with a bench; however, just 20 feet further from the 1st lookout is a non-accessible stunning vista with a cliff that's a must-see.

History: This trail was constructed in 1978 by the Youth Conservation Corps and named after Samuel Barbour who died in a log jam on Owassee Rapids in the 1890's. Owassee Rapids is also known as Barbour's Bend.
