Devil's Kitchen

Map A

(Luzerne) Map A 2 miles round trip; moderate. 25 mins from Scranton

Take Route 11 south to Wyoming Avenue in Wyoming. Turn right on 8th Street and go to Orloski's Gas Station. Turn left and travel 3 blocks to Fairview Street. Turn right. Proceed up street and park on left in clearing.

Trail begins on left side of road over culm banks and across a creek. Turn right, follow dirt road to pipeline. Turn right. Follow pipeline to abandoned car. Turn right onto path and cross creek. Follow path due north to rock formations. View on top of rocks is a panorama of the whole valley- Pittston to Wilkes-Barre. Be sure to explore the crevice; with some imagination you will find the "kitchen".

The Tubbs

(Luzerne) No Map 100 ft. to 2 miles; easy 25 mins from Scranton.

Take Interstate 81 south to Exit 47 and go 1.7 miles south on Route 115. Turn right at sign for Tubs. Go down hill 1/8 mile and park in designated areas.

Walk 200 ft to confluence of two streams. Three choices here:

  1. Turn left. Walk upstream past bridge and see seven Tubs for which the area is named. Come back on same side or cross stream on bridge or elsewhere and return on other side.
  2. Cross pedestrian bridge. Turn right and proceed 100feet to flat, bare rocks; turn left and walk up stream along path and return.
  3. Turn right instead of crossing bridge. Walk downstream and return.

The Tubs are basin-shaped rock formations with a delightfully rushing brook running through them. Several spots are tempting for (NOW ILLEGAL) swimming.

Brochures are available with complete informatlon on this area.
