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.

Trail Description
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.

Universally 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. There's also a seasonal water fountain available.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
