Experiencing the beauty, excitement, history and activity of The Stonycreek, with the convenience of your conveyance! The Stonycreek is a river atop the Allegheny Plateau in Southwestern Pennsylvania that is known for its whitewater boating and wilderness-style fly-fishing. But there's much more here: the family-friendly resources of Quemahoning Lake ... event-packed Greenhouse Park ... the natural beauty of the Stonycreek Valley ... histories of coal mining and immigrants ... and a dramatic story of a river's return to life. This Driving Tour will give you a good taste of what The Stonycreek is all about -- and provide a fantastic half-day outing for you and your family. This is more than a motor tour, though. To truly experience the Stony, you'll need to leave your vehicle, look around, hike a bit and maybe even put on swimming trunks ... waders ... or a PFD (personal flotation device)!Show more
