Chickies Rock Vista

Chickies Rock Vista is at the top of a 200 foot tall cliff on the west end of Chickies Ridge. The Susquehanna River’s east bank is a mere 150 feet away and the 180 degree panoramic view is beautiful. To the south the Wrights Ferry Bridge connects the two PA boroughs of Columbia and Wrightsville, to the north farmlands surround Marietta and Maytown, and to the west the sinuous Susquehanna River winds around Round Top.

This vista can be accessed via the Chickies Rock Trail.

Chickies Rock is made of the same erosion resistant quartzite which dots a path across the river below.  Rock climbers come from far and wide to fight and claw their way to the top of this big tough hunk of rock but, fortunately for the non-climbers amongst us, there is an easier way to get to the top; all it takes is a short half mile hike along fairly level ground.
