Susquehanna River Water Trail - West Branch - Cherry Tree to Sunbury, PA
Activities:

The best way to experience the West Branch Susquehanna Water Trail will be by boat, canoe or kayak. When on the river, you can fish, look for wildlife, visit riverside communities, or just enjoy the experience of floating downstream. There are numerous historic “rafting” sites along the river, from which lumbermen launch rafts of logs down river for transport to mills and the Chesapeake Bay.

Be sure to consult a water trail guide (when completed), detailed maps and local conditions prior to any river trip! Follow all safety precautions.

Birding and Wildlife Viewing Boat Access Camping Canoeing / Kayaking
Facilities: There are 26 existing public launch sites along the water trail route. Launch sites provide parking and access to the river. Informational and interpretive signs have been installed at a number of sites. The water trail map and guide provides more details on launch site facilities.
Length: 228 miles / 367 kilometers
