Nature Tours and Historic Sites


     Our area holds a wide variety of natural attractions including five spectacular falls in small mountain streams and several large rock formations.

     The Elk range is dotted with the sites of bygone lumber camps and logging ghost towns.  Some of the sites include Memorial Springs, which honors perished forest fire fighters, and the Noble-Chambers Memorial Forest, which honors two foresters that were killed by an explosion in the Quehanna Wilds.

     Other points of interest include the locations of powder factories that provided dynamite for the Panama Canal, the Bucktail Regiment Civil War Monument, the sites of nine CCC camps used from 1933-1941, the Cameron County Little Museum, the PA Lumber Museum, the Tom Mix (silent cowboy movie star) birthplace and museum, the remnants of the 2053 foot Kinzua Railroad Bridge wood viaduct, the original site of the home of the Sylvania Electric Products, and the Austin Dam disaster.
