Outdoor Recreation

Pennsylvania beckons as a natural year-round playground. Lose yourself in the rugged, wild beauty of tree-covered mountains, forest land, rushing rivers, natural landscapes and vast parks. The state’s infinite selection of outdoor activities will beckon you back again and again.

Mountain bike through the Alleghenies. Spot raptors high above Hawk Mountain. Night ski in the Pocono Mountains. Kayak along the Susquehanna River. Stand among ancient trees, forest monuments left intact by loggers. Explore Pennsylvania's water trails – recreational corridors with access points, boat launches, day-use sites and even overnight camping areas – are a reflection of the state's diverse geology, ecology and communities. Even soak up some sun on the beaches – yes, beaches – along Lake Erie.
