New Image

The Roaring Creek Tract is located within the Weiser State Forest, off of Route 54, outside of Elysburg and Bear Gap.  A large valley extends eastwardly from Shamokin Creek for a distance of 16 miles, and is bounded on either side by continuous mountain chains, Big Mountain being on the south and Little Mountain on the north. Through this valley flows the water of the South Branch of Roaring Creek. The South Branch of Roaring Creek begins at the head of this valley and flows westward about 10 miles before it breaks through Little Mountain at a point known as Bear Gap.

Hiking, hunting, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, electric powered boating, biking, wildlife watching, nature study, and cross-country skiing are all encouraged. Fishing is catch-and-release only at this time.
