One of Pennsylvania’s newest Byways, West Branch Susquehanna River Scenic Byway runs along the river for nearly 75 miles, passing through 11 townships and 5 boroughs, on the way between Clearfield and Cherry Tree. Leaving Clearfield, you can catch the route along the river right in town. You’ll pass McGee’s Mills Covered Bridge, the only remaining covered bridge in Clearfield County and serenely beautiful Curwensville Lake Recreation Area, a man-made lake which allows unlimited horsepower boats on its lake.  The 11-mile Clearfield to Grampian Rails to Trails winds alongside the Byway. Both routes provide views of the beautiful rolling hills and valleys of the Pennsylvania Wilds. You are sure to see some of God’s special creatures peering out at you along the drive. In addition to abundant wildlife, more than half of the 50 state-designated historical markers in Clearfield County are located along the Byway.
