Mount Jewett is filled with plenty things to do, places to eat, sights to see and activities to enjoy. Here are three things to do if you’re coming to Mt. Jewett.
Allegheny National Forest
Situated along Mount Jewett, Allegheny National Forest provides four full seasons of recreation such as hunting, boating, hiking, camping, and ATV trails. The national forest is open all year round and free to the public. The forest includes almost 520,000 acres of land including areas within Elk, McKean, and Warren. Over 11,000 acres are covered by lakes as the Allegheny Reservoir is formed by the Dam in Kinzua.
Kinzua Bridge Sky Walk
Known as one of the world’s top most beautiful skywalks, the Kinzua Bridge Skywalk will give you endless breathtaking scenic views of the Kinzua Bridge. Located in Northwestern Pennsylvania, the Kinzua Skywalk was built on the historic viaduct steel towers that remained to stand after the tornado destruction in 2003.
The Kinzua Bridge Skywalk reaches out to over 620 feet as the walkway features a set of railroad tracks that leads toward the partial glass floor. There’s no charge for admission as the park is open daily from 8 am until sunset.
You can find the expected park amenities such as picnic areas, pavilion rentals, hiking trails and the newly opened Visitors Center.
Dine at Kaffe Sol
Just minutes from the Kinzua state park sits Jewett’s favorite, Kaffe Sol. There you can enjoy a pleasant café as you sit outside and enjoy a latte. Coffees come in a variety of flavors such as Chai, blueberry cobbler, and crème Brule. You can indulge in Kaffe Sol’s signature Swedish Rye bread, cinnamon rolls and fruit scones.
Everyone is welcome to visit as owner Connie, and her teal will meet you in Swedish costume.
