Sports and Recreation:

We hold a front row seat in the Allegheny National Forest, abundant with hiking trails, beaches and scenic picnic areas. Nearby Allegany State Park offers recreation and fun for the whole family. Totally surrounded by forest, Kinzua Dam and Allegheny Reservoir rest in the hear of what many consider the largest and most popular outdoor recreation complex in the Northeast U.S. Throughout the four seasons, visitors and residents alike enjoy hunting, snowmobiling, canoeing, fishing, hiking, and all the treasures of the great outdoors. The Kinzua Dam offers fun outdoor activities year round for the whole family.

Scenic, well-maintained public and private golf courses are also plentiful and within easy driving distance. Bradford’s own Pennhills Country Club, crafted by noted designer Walter J. Travis, and Pine Acres Country Club both 18-hole beauties, are two of the area’s most popular destinations for golf enthusiasts.

Voted New York’s Favorite Ski Resort by the experts, Holiday Valley in nearby Ellicottville, NY, is a short drive for big family fun. Take a day or longer and enjoy the charm of this world-class ski community complete with restaurants, quaint shops and galleries, great lodging and country charm.

University life in our area also offers NCAA basketball teams at St. Bonaventure University and year-round sports via the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference at Pitt-Bradford.
