The Hyner section of the West Branch Paddle Club (WBPC) takes its name from the hang gliders that are often seen overhead where the Susquehanna River West Branch wanders past Hyner View State Park. In total, this section covers roughly 43 miles of the 228-mile water trail, passing through scenic woodlands and the Susquehanna Greenway River Towns of Renovo and Lock Haven, ending in Jersey Shore. Some points of interest along this section of the water trail include Hyner View State Park, remnants of the Lock Haven boom, and Great Island, the former location of three Munsee Indian villages.
