State Park: Birding, Fish, Hike, History, Picnic, Walk, Wildlife
The 405-acre Salt Springs State Park is in northeastern Pennsylvania, seven miles north of Montrose in Susquehanna County. Focal points of the park are the towering old growth hemlock trees, many estimated to be more than 300 years old, and the rocky gorge cut by Fall Brook with its three waterfalls. The Friends of Salt Springs Park owns 437 acres adjacent to the park’s southern border, which also is open for public access. The renovated Wheaton family homestead houses the Friends’ offices, gift shop, and historical and environmental interpretive information. Displays feature nineteenth-century rural life and regional wildlife. The Wheaton House is open on weekends from May through September. The park is open every day of the year, sunrise to sunset. Day use areas close at dusk.
