Sugar Run Creek is a tributary of the Susquehanna River in Bradford County, Pennsylvania, in the United States. It is approximately 7.9 miles (12.7 km) and flows through North Branch Township, Windham Township, and Wilmot Township.[1]

Course[edit]

Sugar Run Creek begins near a pond in North Branch Township. It flows north and immediately enters Windham Township. In this township, the creek continues north for a short distance before turning west. A short distance downstream, the creek enters Wilmot Township. It then turns northwest and flows past Grant Hill. Continuing northwest, the creek flows parallel to Pennsylvania Route 187 and receives the tributaries Rock Cabin Run and Panther Lick Creek. It then turns north and slightly east and picks up the tributary Sugar Run. The valley of the creek broadens and a couple of miles later, the creek reaches its confluence with the Susquehanna River.[1]
