THINGS TO DO - IN OUR SMALL COLLEGE TOWN
A perfect day in the Grove
Check out our great Selin's Grove downtown!
Many shops, restaurants to be discovered - just click the link above link...then come & explore!
Kayak, Canoe or Tube
Bring your kayak, canoe, or even tube!- or rent in advance from outfitters in town.
There are several resident Bald Eagles in Selinsgrove and plenty of other critters
to discover on our wide easy going Susquehanna river, (with tons of cool islands to paddle around), Middle and Penn's Creek which both terminate here in the Grove are equally fun & more challenging, if the water isn't low or too high.
TWO Selinsgrove public landings; one on the Susquehanna on Front Street, on the Isle of Que and a gravel one on Penn's Creek at the end of Sassafras and Water Streets at 'Little Norway'.
'Easy River'- Access Susquehanna river at 'Shady Nook' public landing off the 'Old Trail' behind WalMart - a very easy 1-2 hours (or as long as you want/ explore the islands/ picnic/ fish) to Isle of Que public landing in Selinsgrove. Attempt at your own risk.
'Landing Loop' you can also leave & return from Susquehanna boat landing (if water isn't high paddling upstream isn't bad)) & paddle around an island(s) then return. Attempt at your own risk.
'Penn's Creek' -Access Penns Creek up at New Berlin's park a 5-6 hour, somewhat challenging paddle to the Grove's landing on the End of Sassafrass & Water Streets 'Little Norway' public landing. Attempt at your own risk.
CYCLING, walking & running
Serious or recreational cyclists will love the great back roads through miles of rural Amish
countryside that surround Selinsgrove!
Enter in our zip code 17870 & Heather's routes are under 'hhays' on 'map my ride' for some great routes that start end at the PUB!
'Isle of Que' LOOP - a 5 or 3 mile option - a family favorite!
A nice ride/walk/run to the 'Isle of Que' which is scenic & low traffic (as always exercise caution & rules of the road- travel at your own risk).
Directions- Head south on Market street to the red light - go left onto Pine Street over bridge until it ends at the river then turn right along the river until it ends at a farm & return -this loop is 5 miles. It is ... a little over three miles from the pub to the public landing & back- same directions.... just stop at public landing on the Susquehanna, skip a few rocks, watch the boaters, (peek at Bald Eagle's nest on island opposite the landing) use the porta-potty and return for a pub refreshments!
ICE SKATING- only open it its been seriously cold - 'Little Norway' at the END of North Water St.- is an ALL volunteer outdoor old fashion community effort - skates are FREE to borrow (of every type and size).
Please give a donation! Night lighting & skates, pucks and sticks -as available!
