Notes

Grand View Trail is an easy hiking trail in Ricketts Glen State Park near Scranton, Pennsylvania. This trail is kid friendly and dog friendly, but your furry kids have to be on leash. The park says "this trail takes hikers to the highest point on Red Rock Mountain (elevation 2,449 ft). In mid-June, the beautiful mountain laurel is in bloom. In mid-July, the high bush blueberries bear fruit, and in the fall, there are awe inspiring views of the fall foliage encompassing the surrounding hillsides, making this trail a pleasant hike at any time of the year." Ricketts Glen State Park makes a great snowshoeing and cross country skiing destination in the winter. There is camping available in Ricketts Glen State Park.
