One of the best things about Gannon’s location in Erie is the city atmosphere. But if you need a break from the city life, there are many nearby places you can go for a more rural vibe.

For example: Wintergreen Gorge.

Located off of East 38th St., Wintergreen Gorge is a short drive away from Gannon’s campus and offers many hiking trails. Six Mile Creek runs through the area and provides some great scenery. Wintergreen Gorge is a great place to spend an hour or spend a day.
