Philly to Wellsboro, PA (PA Grand Canyon)

I'm planning a trip from Philadelphia, PA to Wellsboro, PA to checkout the PA Grand Canyon. This will be a weekend trip leaving Friday morning and coming home Sunday so I'm looking for route suggestions, eateries in Wellsboro and lodging. Not looking for the cheapest hotel nor the most expensive just something safe, comfortable and insect/rodent free. Thanks

I guess this weekend will be better (less crowded with all those BMW folks)than next weekend as Wellsboro is the destination for the BMW RA National rally..

Went through there about 10 years ago.

There was a nice, rustic inn in the area.

The "Mountain Highway" goes along the northern part of the state and leads to the area.

Route 6 as I recall.

Yes.....it was a great ride up Palisades pkwy to West Point. We got a late start so we didnt get to do any additional riding around West Point but that just makes for a good excuse to go back. The WP museum was awesome and we ended up eating at a joint called Scades, not sure I spelled that right. The picture is from the scenic overlook along the Palisades pkwy.

If you plan on going next weekend you’ll be hard pressed to find a hotel room. The RA rally is going to be well attended this year judging from pre registration numbers.

There are a few rooms still available as of a couple hours ago but most places are booked. I can always go the following weekend.

Post Re: Philly to Wellsboro, PA (PA Grand Canyon)

So when you cross into PA on I-84, there is a welcome center near Milford, PA.


Inside is a stuffed black bear that was over 800 lbs when shot.


It even has a hump on its back like a Grizzly Bear.


Worth the stop.


BTW, you can pick up US 6 in this area.
