Great Valley is a place famed for showcasing some of the best fall colors when the air starts to turn crisp and the sunlight glows orange, but it is also known for being within close range to a number of natural areas. In fact, just to the south lies the Allegany State Park, which makes up the broader range of Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania. A popular spot for hiking and outdoor recreation, many campers enjoy exploring the wilderness here throughout the year. Rocky City State Forest is ideal for lighter hikes that wind through the trees, and you can also follow trails along the Allegheny River. Here, you can be assured that peaceful riverside views will take your breath away.
