THE PINE CREEK GORGE

The 17-mile Pine Creek Gorge, aka the “Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania,” is an all-day or overnight epic paddling experience.  Start your trip in Ansonia at Pine Creek Outfitters and finish at either Blackwell or Rattlesnake Rocks.  There are some class II/III rapids that require skill to navigate.   

Camping is available along Pine Creek.  17 miles can usually be done in one day (5+hours on the water) but many prefer to camp and enjoy it over two or more days. 

Pine Creek is typically seasonal, and is normally not floatable in summer unless there has been recent heavy rain.
