Experience the wilder side of Susquehanna State Park as you walk in blissful solitude through woods full of old growth. Before you begin the hike, you might want to walk down to the Susquehanna River, just behind Rock Run Mill. This beautiful river boasts very impressive statistics: 444 miles long, a 13 million-acre drainage basin, the second-largest watershed in the eastern United States. The river begins as an overflow of Otsego Lake in New York and runs through three states before draining into Chesapeake Bay, just south at Havre de Grace, Maryland, pouring 19 million gallons of fresh water into the bay every minute.
