Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania

The Indians called Pine Creek "Tiadaghton," which meant river of pines. These now-gone pines brought drastic changes to Pine Creek.

Logging began in the 1800s. Before the logging, the thick soil held rainwater like a sponge. It released it slowly to the creek. Pine Creek stayed high enough to canoe all summer.

Today water runs off much more quickly carrying soil with it. The creek is rock-strewn by August.

Pine Creek still has much of its wilderness spirit. Experience it in the spring by raft or canoe. Like early travelers, you'll find it a path to lead you into the wilderness.
