Named for Native American Chief Bald Eagle, central Pennsylvania's state forest covers a rugged ridge and valley region of the state. Spread over five counties and nearly 200,000 acres, this section of the Allegheny Mountains is dominated by sandstone ridges that reach heights of 2300 feet. These sharp ridges spawn many pristine mountain streams that eventually make their way to Penns Creek and the Susquehanna River Valley. Penns Creek is Pennsylvania's most famous limestone stream, known for its wild brown trout and excellent fishing.
