About Hunlock Creek

Hunlock Creek

 

 

 

 

 

Hunlock Creek (also known as Hunlocks Creek) is a tributary of the Susquehanna Riverin Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, in the United States. It is approximately 7.8 miles (12.6 km) long and flows through Lehman Township and Hunlock Township.[1] The watershed of the creek has an area of 32.5 square miles (84 km2) and is situated in northwestern Luzerne County. It has one named tributary (which is known as Roaring Brook) and a number of unnamed and unofficially named tributaries, such as "West Branch Hunlock Creek". Hunlock Creek is designated as a Coldwater Fishery and a Migratory Fishery and part of it is inhabited by wild trout. The annual rate of precipitation in the watershed is 35 to 45 inches (89 to 114 cm). Rock formations consisting of sandstone and shale are common in the vicinity of the creek. A number of bridges have been built over the creek and it was the site of a furnace in the 1800s. An area listed on the Luzerne County Natural Areas Inventory is located in the creek's watershed.

Geography and geology

 

 


The elevation near the mouth of Hunlock Creek is 512 feet (156 m) above sea level.The elevation near the creek's source is between 1,140 and 1,160 feet (350 and 350 m) above sea level. The creek's elevation decreases at a rate of 79.3 feet (24.2 m) per mile.

A high ridge runs from near Hunlock Creek westward to the Shickshinny Gap. This ridge is known as Shickshinny Mountain and is made from Pocono beds. Green sandstone and red shale occur along the creek. A sandstone formation containing red quartz pebbles also occurs in the area and at one point forms a 30-foot-high (9-meter-high) cliff along the creek. Additionally, shale of the Mauch Chunk Formation can be found in the vicinity of the creek.

Drift heaps cover the old channel of Hunlock Creek.

A 1921 book described the topography of the watershed of Hunlock Creek as "rough and hilly". The creek cuts through a mountain range in its lower reaches. Swamps and glacial lakes occur in the watershed. The channel of the creek is sinuous and cuts through rock formationsconsisting of sandstone and shale.

Hunlock Creek is designated as a Coldwater Fishery and a Migratory Fishery throughout its entire drainage basin. Wild trout naturally reproduce int the creek from T-534 downstream to its mouth. This stretch is 3.9 miles (6.3 km) long. They also do so in the tributary Roaring Brook and in the unofficially named tributary West Branch Hunlock Creek.

The Shickshinny Mountain Slopes, which are listed as a Locally Significant Area in the Luzerne County Natural Areas Inventory, are located in the watershed of Hunlock Creek in Plymouth Township. These slopes or on the northern side of Shickshinny Mountain and contain second-growth northern hardwood forests and some rock outcroppings with small seeps. The area contains a large number of wildflower species and some rare plants. The main tree species in this area include American basswoodsugar maplewhite ashwhite oakblack cherry, andeastern hemlock.
