One of the best rivers in PA, the Susquehanna River Drainage offers paddlers, hikers, and fishers a ton of options. This guide details 228 miles, so you know you'll have no shortage of things to explore. PRODUCT FEATURES:
- Appalachian Outdoors
A 228-mile long paddling journey starting at Cherry Tree in Indiana County and ending at Shikellamy State Park in Northumberland/Sunbury at the confluence with the North Branch Susquehanna. Paddle through a region of beautiful forests with a 200-year heritage of people making a living from lumber. While following the West Branch Water Trail, you can see the remnants of past logging - the small streams that once powered family saw mills, the "rafting points" used by river pilots to navigate the dangerous waters, and ribbons of long abandoned logging railroads. You can also enjoy what forest conservation and today's managed forest practices have left us: mile after mile of forested valleys; deer, bear, elk, and birds in abundance; and water quality that is continually improving. The map and guide includes sixteen full-color maps of the West Branch Susquehanna River from Cherry Tree, PA to Northumberland, PA. Each map contains detailed mileage posts and notes on points on interest found in that section of the river. The set of maps is held in an attractive folder and is printed on waterproof, tear-resistant stock. **Susquehann River Water Trail - Middle Section & North Branch, also available (click "Outdoor Guides MidAtlantic" above).
