The Main Lookout Trail at Leonard Harrison State Park in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.3-mile out-and-back trail that leads to an amazing lookout point above the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania.

This trail starts at the main parking lot at the park and runs south following the fence with various overlook points along the way. The trail is mostly flat, with stairs near the end that lead to the best lookout point; however, you really do not need to walk very far for a view.

Accessible: The trail is wheelchair accessible for almost the entire length, except for the few staircases near the end.

Pets: Dogs are allowed on leash and their waste must be carried out.

Parking: Parking can be found at the large parking lot at the parking coordinates provided. This is a very popular spot, so be prepared to share the view on weekends. Weekday evenings and mornings are a lot quieter.

Water: There's a small gift shop located near the parking area where you can also buy water. I did not look for a water fountain, but there may be one available too.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
