McKean County is a wonderland for outdoor recreation with the Kinzua Bridge State Park and the Allegheny National Forest recreation sites.

It abounds in easy access points to streams and trails, friendly inns, quality family restaurants and stimulating natural attractions. Over 600 miles of hiking, snowmobiling, bicycle and skiing trails are available, along with ATV riding areas in Rew and on the Allegheny National Forest. The major forest roads provide access into some of the best hunting and fishing areas in the Eastern United States.
McKean County has developed into a year-round vacation land matching the interest of hikers, campers, snowmobilers, fishermen, birdwatchers, skiers, photographers or anyone else wanting to get away from it all. You can challenge our rugged backwoods or - if you prefer - you can have the luxury of modern conveniences and "rough it easy". Plan a day trip, weekend or your whole vacation.
McKean County is "Trail Central" with miles of four-season trails, including hiking, biking, ATV, and snowmobiling. The Allegheny National Forest, the only National Forest in Pennsylvania offers over 513,000 acres of outdoor recreation with cabin and campground rentals available year-round.

The Longhouse National Scenic Byway, a 29-mile driving loop was named by US Today as one of the top scenic drives in the United States. The Zippo/Case Museum, located in Bradford, is a must see attraction and the only place in the world that manufactures Zippo lighters and Case knives.
