A Paddler’s Map and Guide to the Scenic

West Branch Susquehanna River

 from Cherry Tree, Pennsylvania to the confluence with North Branch Susquehanna at Northumberland.


Consider planning an outdoor adventure on the Susquehanna River Water Trail, 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.

This detailed guide includes safety and route information, along with 16 waterproof maps showing historic rafting points, natural resources and recreational opportunities. Described by Paddlers as the "standard for all paddling guides".
