Kinzua Sky Walk – a distinctive hike from the parking area to the newly opened Kinzua Sky Walk will provide views of the Kinzua Gorge from the overlook at the end of the 624 foot sky walk. The Kinzua Sky Walk is built on the historic six towers of the Kinzua Viaduct that remained following a tornado on July 21, 2003. Featuring a partial glass floor, the skywalk is a thrilling stroll on the “Tracks Across the Sky”.
The General Kane Trail, named after Thomas Leiper Kane, is a 1-mile loop hiking trail at the park. It leads people through forested areas that were ravished by the tornado, as well as those that remained unharmed. American chestnut trees are visible along this trail. The trail head is located at 41 45. 420N 078 35. 133W.
