About the Park

Wyalusing Rocks, also known as Prayer Rocks, beckons visitors with a stunning overlook and a rich history spanning centuries. Esteemed in Native American cultures, this elevated site served as an important point for communication above a bend in the Susquehanna River, enabling signals to be seen for miles.

It marked the convergence of the Warriors Path, connecting northward to Binghamton and southward to the Carolinas, and the Wyalusing Path leading to Shamokin. This historic site stands as a testament to its significance across various periods in North American history.

Right from the parking area, visitors will see a spectacular vista overlooking the Susquehanna River and the valley below. At the southern end of the pull-off, there is some informational signage about the area’s history and a short path to a rock outcropping offering more views.

Caution is advised due to the rocks being situated above a substantial cliff side, so visitors may proceed at their own risk.

Park and Trail Access

Despite some graffiti, the site remains one of the standout vista points along Route 6 in PA Wilds. Accessible via a spacious parking turnout at the provided coordinates, the trail welcomes leashed dogs, with the responsibility for owners to carry out any pet waste.
