Mt. Pisgah State Park is in the scenic Endless Mountains region of Pennsylvania’s Northern Tier. Midway between Troy and Towanda in Bradford County, the 1,302-acre park is along Mill Creek, at the base of Mt. Pisgah, elevation 2,260 feet. The park is only two miles north of US 6, the major route through the northern tier. Secondary roads passing through the villages of East Troy and West Burlington travel over rolling farmland to the park.

Hi! I’m Jerry Smith. I lived at Mt. Pisgah in the 1800’s with my family. We lived in a cabin where the boat launch map is now located. That is where our journey begins. From our cabin, I ran approximately 150 paces East to the group of picnic tables where my sister Susannah was sitting. I would chase her down her namesake’s trail. We’d watch the waterfall and the old mill churning the water on the creek.

Then we would throw rocks off of the wooden bridge over Mill Creek. I remember spending hours climbing in the pine tree at the end of the bridge.
Susannah and I ran franticly past the trail that led back to the unfriendly tribe of Goshawk Indians. When we came to the next fork in the trail, we always went left. It was fun to sit on the dam and look down at Mill Creek (You are not allowed to climb on the dam anymore).

Susannah and I walked deeper into the forest on her favorite trail and up a steep hill. At the second yellow blazed tree after the bench, we turned left and went off the trail. We liked to sit on the huge boulder. Under a medium rock on top of the boulder we hid our toy chest.
