Protecting the land, providing recreation

Susquehanna Riverlands


Council Cup Scenic Overlook

This 88-acre tract is owned by PPL and operated  in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Game Commission. The area is under a multi-use land management program. PPL provides for soil conservation, wildlife-habitat enhancement, and protection of open space and natural areas.

Council Cup, located approximately 700 feet above the Susquehanna River Valley, provides a breathtaking view of over 30 miles.

This scenic overlook was used in the past as a lookout and meeting place by Native Americans. Now it's heavily used during the fall color season and as a hawk watch.
