Lebo Vista is a fantastic roadside scenic overlook at the southern end of the PA Grand Canyon.
Located in the Lycoming County portion of the Tiadaghton State Forest, the turn-off to reach this roadside vista is located along Route 44, AKA “The Highway to the Stars”.
Directions to Lebo Vista
The intersection of Lebo Road and Route 44 is located at GPS coordinates 41.35722, -77.52114, so depending on your direction of travel this will be either a left or right off or Route 44.
Once you turn onto Lebo Road, it’s a 4.4 mile drive back this well-maintained (but narrow) state forest road.
As of the fall of 2022 the road is in great shape and certainly passable even in a passenger car.
You will, however, pass several gas pads on your way back to the vista, so be forewarned you may have to pull partially off the road to allow large trucks coming in the opposite direction to pass.
3 miles back Lebo Road you’ll come to a well-marked intersection; you’ll want to stay to the right to continue on to Lebo Vista.
One mile past that fork in the road you’ll come the dead end of Lebo Road, which loops around at the end and allows you to park right next to the view (located at GPS coordinates 41.38928, -77.46828).
The Views from Lebo Vista
Lebo Vista sits at an elevation of 1,861 feet above sea level and faces east, with 180-degree views to the north and south.
The elevation is almost identical to the more famous Barbour Rock Overlook at the northern end of the PA Grand Canyon, which sits at 1,863 feet above sea level.
The views to the south from Lebo Vista are in the direction of Waterville, with great views of Pine Creek.
To the north, you’re looking in the direction of Cammal.
The Pine Creek Rail Trail runs far below Lebo Vista, albeit on the opposite side of Pine Creek.
When you’ve had your fill of Lebo Vista, simply backtrack to Route 44 before continuing on to other nearby attractions like Hyner View State Park, located 17 miles away in neighboring Clinton County.
Leonard Harrison State Park is also located on the west rim of the PA Grand Canyon, further north in Tioga County.
Featuring scenic overlooks, waterfalls, and an interesting Visitor Center, Leonard Harrison State Park is truly a must-see among PA state parks.
Colton Point State Park encompasses 368-acres on the west rim of the PA Grand Canyon in Tioga County.
The Piper Aviation Museum in nearby Lock Haven honors the legacy of the Piper Aircraft Corporation, which designed and manufactured aircraft in Clinton County, PA between 1937 and 1984.
