Pine Creek (Penns Creek)

Pine Creek is a 18.4-mile-long (29.6 km)[1] tributary of Penns Creek in central Pennsylvania in the United States.[2] Via Penns Creek, it is part of the Susquehanna River watershed.

Pine Creek rises in Bald Eagle State Forest in a high valley between Sharpback Mountain and Buck Ridge. It flows west-southwest into Penns Valley, turning southwest to pass the village of Woodward, then returning to its west-southwest direction along the northern side of Woodward Mountain. It flows to the vicinity of Coburn, where it is joined by Elk Creek and, at Coburn proper, joins Penns Creek.
