Itinerary:

Coal Rich Mountains

Paddle a route of the Susquehanna with a rich history in coal mining.

As you pass the various islands in the river, be sure to look up at the mountains on river east. These mountains have some of the richest coal veins in Pennsylvania, with this very section of the river being a major part of coal transportation in the mid-1800s. 

Thank you to Susquehanna Greenway for contributing to this itinerary. To read more about this paddle trip, visit Susquehanna Greenway.
