Towering 360’ above the above the confluence of the Western Branch and the Northern Branch of the Susquehanna River Shikellamy State Park features two overlooks on the Eastern side of Blue Hill. The overlooks, perched atop the sheer cliffs that fall straight down to the Western Branch and the area known as Lake Augusta below, look out over the city of Sunbury, the borough of Northumberland and Packer Island on which you will find the other half of Shikellamy State Park. The cliffs below the overlook are also home to 1 of the only 3 nests built by a breeding pair of endangered Peregrine Falcons in the entire state.
