Explore the Great Outdoors this Spring
Northern Pennsylvania’s landscape in the Spring is breathtaking with blooming flowers and foliage. Explore miles of mapped trails for both foot and bike, like Ernst Trail, the former railroad bed that runs along French Creek with multiple access points. Canoe, kayak or paddleboard French Creek all the way to Cambridge Springs or Franklin for a challenging and fun afternoon on the water. Bring your fishing pole and take your best shot at catching one of 88 fish species in Crawford County, one of the most biologically diverse areas in the state.
For anglers of all ages, head out to Linesville this season to see the ducks walk on fish at the Spillway on the Pymatuning Reservoir, an event so amazing to see it’s earned itself a spot as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Pennsylvania. Plan to stay the weekend at one of several campsites, with secluded spots perfect for stargazing away from the city hustle and bustle.
