Brady's Bend Overlook in Autumn: Allegheny River View in Clarion County

The Brady's Bend Overlook, high above the a bend of Allegheny River in Clarion County, is one of our favorite places for a quick afternoon drive from Pittsburgh. The view is just stunning, no matter the season, but especially in autumn. For some more seasonal views and background on this spot, check out this previous article of ours.
I love the way the hills look gently rounded out on the other side of the river. 
Caught behind a cloud for a minute.
Here comes the sun!
Looking out the other direction.
"You haven't lived until you have looked down upon a hawk." I agree! While hang gliding is no longer allowed in this location, you can still look down upon the hawks from this location. Unfortunately, the man who was quoted in this plaque died while hang gliding in this location. 

As always, we highly recommend checking out Brady's Bend, especially in the fall!

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
