Little Rocky Glen
Between Tunkhannock and Factoryville, .3-mile on Lithia Valley Road off Route 6,
Little Rocky Glen: acquired in 2004. A 26-acre property containing a spectacular sandstone gorge on the South Branch of the Tunkhannock Creek in Clinton Township, Wyoming County. Steep hemlock-clad slopes rise to either side of the gorge. This has historically been a popular fishing and picnicking spot; a picnic shelter was opened here in fall 2008. Open to the public dawn to dusk, April to November.
This small preserve is owned and protected by the Countryside Conservancy and it encompasses a shale and sandstone gorge, about one hundred feet deep, carved by the South Branch Tunkhannock Creek. The creek features cascades and rapids, with deep pools and potholes carved into the bedrock. Cliffs and ledges rise above the creek, often draped by ferns and hemlocks.
