About Penns Creek (aka Coburn):

On east side of creek, across the bridge, at the top of the hill, is an obvious small crag. There are a few top ropes and even a trad lead possible. Nice view from top. Plenty of trees to hang a rope from. On west side of creek, the north side of the ridge with the tunnel going through it, you can wander around up on the ridge and find some boulder problems scattered around. Not worth driving to, but OK if you happen to be there already. Poe Paddy State Park is an easy walk from this area. Rustic campsites and toilets available.
Nearest town or city: Coburn
Directions: Go to Coburn, cross the creek heading south, follow road until it ends, park. There is a foot bridge (former railroad bridge) crossing the creek, and a train tunnel going through a ridge.
Latitude, Longitude: 40.84938, -77.45012
Access Issues: On the east ridge, across the railroad bridge, there is a small section of private land. The old trail that goes up to the powercut is on private land. The owner of the land has cut a new swath to the left of the original one that goes to the powercut. Please use it and do not tread on the private property. If you see the owner thank him for cutting the new trail.
