Cruise through Potter-Tioga

Motorcyclists looking for their next great ride will want to rev up their planning and make their way to Potter and Tioga Counties! This spectacular region, centrally located along Pennsylvania’s northern border, offers motorcycle enthusiasts miles of incredible topography. It’s linked by the historic Pennsylvania Route 6 and connects to many state highways and scenic byways. Ride through dense forests, roll past tranquil lakes, and make your way through the scenic countryside that is home to the area’s many popular parks and iconic attractions. Throughout the year, seasonal landscapes offer riders thrilling backdrops while they explore the winding roads connecting the area’s small towns that are brimming with nostalgic treasures.

Start a cruise through the region by first heading to Tioga County’s majestic Pine Creek Gorge, known popularly as the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. With its rugged beauty, breathtaking scenic overlooks, and visitor amenities, bikers will discover an awe-inspiring experience awaiting them. Two access areas, one on each rim – Leonard Harrison State Park and Colton Point State Park – are connected by a winding road that offers an unforgettable ride through the mountainous landscape, one of Tioga County’s hidden treasures. Popular stops across the county like cozy eateries, seasonal farmstands, and tucked-away waterfalls— offer numerous places to explore during a day of touring.

Then, head west to into the timber-rich countryside of Potter County, home of the gold-level International Dark Sky Park, Cherry Springs State Park where the stargazing is always magical. A ride through the region will offer bikers access to the natural wonders of the region’s stunning, green landscape, home to some of Pennsylvania’s most iconic state and local parks, as well as historic towns and forests. While riding late in the day in Potter County, under a setting sun, a canopy of stars will begin to fill the night sky before you. The lack of ambient light from an urban sprawl presents you with the beautiful vision of the open road meeting the starlit sky, making the ride an unforgettable experience for those who experience it.

Whether you’re looking to chase sunsets, spend time in charming rural towns, enjoy some outdoor recreation, or simply looking for the mindful experience of connecting with nature, both Tioga and Potter Counties promise an unforgettable journey to experience on two wheels.
