Things to do by Treaster's Cabin

Entertainment
The one show that you don’t want to miss while visiting is held at the Forksville General Store on Saturday nights only.  Our cabin guests simply rave about this show/meal.  Be sure to check it out, and heed my warning; make your reservations early to avoid disappointment of missing out on all the fun.  Visit their website at www.forksvillestore.com.

Places to visit/see:
Wineries - Sullivan County now boasts of its very own wineries. Check them out!
Covered bridges – Our county has three remaining covered bridges located in Forksville, Hillsgrove, and Sonestown.  These bridges once were everywhere, now few remain.
One traffic light – Our one and only traffic light in Sullivan County is located center town in Dushore
Country General Stores – There are still a few country general stores in the county. Forksville, Hillsgrove and Shunk can still boast of such a country store. Stop in for lunch at one of them, and say “Hello”.
Antique Shops<
There are antique shops located here, and there, and everywhere in the county and nearby neighboring counties. Probably the largest in the area is the Olde Barn Center located near Muncy, PA. Check out their website at: www.oldebarncentre.com
Eagles Mere – Eagles Mere has some shops that you may enjoy visiting. Find out more by visiting their website at www.eaglesmerevillage.com
Outdoor Activities
Loyalsock Trail – This is a 60 mile hiking trail that mostly parallels the Loyalsock Creek. It is known for its many vistas. Check out the website www.fallinpa.com for more information regarding the trail.
Trout fishing - Sullivan County is fortunate to have numerous cold water trout streams. Before season and during the month of May, many streams are regularly stocked. Check out the PA., Fish Commission stocking schedule to see just when these stockings occur. The trout fishing is great in May!
Hunting - Quite honestly, rifle deer hunting is not what it used to be, since the deer herd has been harvested too heavily for the past few years. But, archery hunters still can do well. The turkey hunting, however, is great! Lots of turkeys are seen and heard everywhere!
Canoeing/kayaking/tubing – Although the Loyalsock is not suitable for canoeing, kayaking and tubing can be done at certain times of the year when the water level is conducive. Canoeing can be done at Hunter’s Lake, near Eagles Mere, or at Lake Jean. The Susquehanna River runs through neighboring counties, where you can also rent a canoe.
Biking – Hundreds of miles of dirt roads run through the mountains of Sullivan County. This makes for a wonderful biking adventure for the family, since traffic is very minimal.Mountain biking can be done on some of the trails before mentioned, too.
Cross country skiing/snowmobiling – When there is snow in the winter, there are numerous trails and roads open for cross country skiing and snowmobiling.

Other Places to Visit
Loyalsock Creek- It’s known for great trout fishing and its wonderful scenic views.  At World’s End Park, the swimming area is actually a large hole in the creek where you swim with the fish, not a pool like other parks.
Haystacks - These are unusual rock formations at the eastern terminus of the Loyalsock Trail. They are shaped, of course, like haystacks.
Loyalsock Canyon Vista – This is the vista that overlooks World’s End State Park and the Loyalsock Creek gorge. It is one of my own personal favorite places, and it is the view you see at the top of this website.
High Knob Overlook – Another vista located near World’s End, where you can view the mountain tops of seven counties.  There is a picnic area located here.
Worlds End State Park – A 780 acre state park located on Rt. 154 near Forksville.  It offers swimming and picnic areas along the Loyalsock Creek.  The Loyalsock Trail also runs through this park.
Ricketts Glen State Park – This is a 13,050 acre park located on the other side of the county. The park contains 24 named waterfalls. The highest falls is 94 feet. This is an especially enjoyable hike.
Pennsylvania Grand Canyon – Even though it is a drive, some of our guests take a day trip to the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon near Wellsboro. Here they offer horseback riding and horse drawn wagon trips through the canyon. I think they offer rafting, too. It’s a fun day!
