Beautiful views of the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon! The park is very well maintained and clean with bathrooms. Great for hiking or visiting as a couple or with kids.

Leonard Harrison State Park is a good family attraction. There's plenty of good views, abundant wildlife, hiking, biking, fishing, camping, etc. It is a well maintained State Park suitable for family getaway weekends, or longer.

OK...not as big as the one way out west, but tons of waterfalls. It's only a mile down to the river from the top and it was a very scenic hike.

Hiked the Turkey trail tons of stairs towards the bottom , nice views not being a frequent hiker wasn't a problem to handle the trail although it's marked steep and hazardous. The trail is not a loop so be prepared for the return uphill hike.

Drop him off before you park. He won't be able to walk to the furthest viewpoint nor manage the steps. Not sure if there are ramps but bring his walker/seat or wheelchair just in case.
