Pennsylvania came fourth on the list of the best states for adventure travel in 2021, according to the new adventure index published by Outforia.

Thanks to its several popular outdoor destinations and a plethora of extreme sports options, Pennsylvania is an ideal place to visit for travelers who are looking to experience a true adventure, according to a new study published by Outforia.

Outforia compiled a list of the best states for adventure seekers in 2021 by comparing the number of available activities across 10 main categories. These include rock climbing routes, hiking trails, and skydiving drop zones.

In fact, the Keystone State ranked as the fourth-best state for adrenalin junkies.

The state boasts 2,884 rocking climbing routes, 2,218 hiking trails, and 294 mountain biking trails. There are also 223 kayaking spots, 25 ski resorts, and 17 zip lines.

And for those looking for even more action, Pennsylvania offers 12 caving grottos, five skydiving drop zones, and one hang gliding location.
