Susquehanna River


On January 21, 2016 the WooFDriver and his crew took the WooFPAK on a Mushing tour of the Susquehanna Warrior Trail in Pennsylvania. The trail passes by the town of Hunlock, named after Johnathan Hunlock who arrived in the area in the early 1770s to build a plantation on the creek. The Hunlock creek was known as Massacota to the Native Americans who used the warrior trail as a footpath.

The trail is named after the river it follows, the Susquehanna River. It is the longest river in eastern United States that empties into the Atlantic Ocean at 464 miles long. It is also one of the oldest rivers in the world! The name Susquehanna is a Native American name meaning Oyster River, referring to the abundant oysters in the Chesapeake Bay were the river empties into.
