Discover Clarion County

Award winning Clarion County is the western gateway to the PA Great Outdoors and Pennsylvania Wilds regions, and home of two federally designated National Wild & Scenic Recreation rivers-the Clarion and the Allegheny.  The Allegheny River was named “2017 Pennsylvania River of the Year”.  The Redbank Valley Trail was DCNR’s first “Pennsylvania Trail of the Year”.  Men’s Journal called Cook Forest State Park “America’s Best Old-Growth Forest” and Clarion’s Autumn Leaf Festival was honored as Pennsylvania Wilds’ “2017 Event of the Year”.

It’s easily reached by car via Interstate 80 (exit 62) from Pittsburgh, Cleveland, New York City, Buffalo, and Erie. There are forest-covered mountains in every direction, which makes it a very scenic place in all four seasons.
