In this exceptional guidebook, author Linda Stager (herself a resident of Wellsboro) takes you on a mile-by-mile tour of the Pine Creek Valley via the Pine Creek Rail-Trail. She shows you landmarks, tells stories about the history of the region, and imparts practical advice for a successful trip along the trail. The Pine Creek Rail Trail is one of Pennsylvania’s destination trails, and for good reason. The 62-mile well-maintained trail runs at the bottom of super-scenic Pine Creek Gorge, commonly called the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania. The gorge runs 800–1,400 feet deep and a mile wide. A natural travel route through northern Pennsylvania for American Indians, the gorge in 1883 became the route of the Jersey Shore, Pine Creek and Buffalo Railway (later named Pine Creek Railway). The last freight passed through in 1988, and the trail was born in 1996 and extended to its present length in 2012.
