White Mountain Wild Area

Also in western Union County lies the White Mountain Wild Area, a 3,581-acre tract located southwest of Weikert. It covers the east end of White Mountain, is bounded on the north by Penns Creek and on the south by Weikert Run. Many of the north and south slopes are covered with large rock outcroppings. These talus slopes are formed by weather resistant sandstone and are bleached white by the sun, thus the name White Mountain. The area shows little evidence of man's activities and will for the most part be kept in this undeveloped state.
