Upper Pine Bottom State Park



Bucktail State Park- Hemmed in by mountains, this state park scenic drive follows PA Route 120 as it winds from Lock Haven to Emporium along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River and the Sinnemahoning Creek. The scenic drive has no recreational facilities. In June, the mountain laurel is in bloom and in early October the fall colors are breathtaking.
Hyner Run State Park- The terrain of the park is generally level and occupies the small valley created by Hyner Run, with steep mountains on both sides. The park derives its name from Hyner Run, which flows through the park. The park is entirely surrounded by Sproul State Forest.
Hyner View State Park- Hyner View State Park features a scenic vista overlooking the West Branch of the Susquehanna River and is a favorite spot for hang gliding.
Little Pine State Park- Little Pine State Park is located in one of the most beautiful sections of the Tiadaghton State Forest in the Appalachian Mountains. A special attraction of the park is the trail system. For seasoned hikers, Spikebush Hollow Trail with its beautiful picturesque vistas, outcroppings of rock and varieties of trees and plants is an enjoyable challenge.
Tiadaghton State Forest- The Tiadaghton State Forest is one of twenty forest districts created for the protection and management of Pennsylvania's forest lands. Tiadaghton was the name the Iroquois gave to Pine Creek, the largest tributary of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River. The exact meaning of Tiadaghton is a mystery that may be locked forever in the folklore of the Iroquois Indians.
