Black Moshannon Creek
|This article needs additional citations for verification. (September 2010)|
The name "Moshannon" is said to be derived from the Native American Moss-Hanne, meaning "moose stream". Historically, Black Moshannon Creek was also known as "Little Moshannon Creek".
Black Moshannon Creek is born atop the Allegheny Plateau from clear springs and small streams which flow through bogs that form the watershed for 250-acre (101 ha) Black Moshannon Lake in Black Moshannon State Park. From the lake, the creek drops off the plateau and joins Moshannon Creek 17.8 miles (28.6 km) later, downstream of the community of Moshannon. At higher water levels, the stream is a solid Class III whitewater run.
