Brady's Bend: Terrific Overlook of the Allegheny River in Clarion County

Brady's Bend is always a pleasure to visit. Different times of the day, different lighting, and different seasons make this view over the Allegheny River especially pop. Visiting it during our recent visit to Clarion was a real treat. As 2017 River of the Year, we check out one of the river's finest overlooks, one that has attracted visitors for as long as we have documented history.

Snowy view!
This seems like a good quote! They no longer do paragliding from this location, but this gives you a general idea of how abrupt of a drop it is from this location.
When you get down to the banks of the river, you will run into the Armstrong Trail, which runs thirty miles down the old Allegheny Railroad right-of-way in the area. Lots of old rail infrastructure remains, including the remnants of an old turntable, an old and closed tunnel across this horseshoe curve in the river, and more. The overlook also has benches and picnic tables, making it an excellent place to bring a picnic lunch to. It is located near many other great attractions in the PA Great Outdoors Region, including some really good eateries, and accommodations. Clarion River Brewing Company is located nearby, along with the Inn at Deer Creek Winery
