TheTulpehocken Path

Extending along the Tulpehocken Creek from Sunbury (then known as Shamokin) to Womelsdorf (then known as Weiser’s), this path was also known as the Shamokin Path and was used by Iroquois embassies traveling from Onondaga (what is now Syracuse) and other parts of the Six Nations country.

Today, Pennsylvania hikers enjoy the scenery of the Pine Grove Furnace, a place which years ago may have served as a resting spot for those traveling along the Tulpehocken Path.
