    Rocky Glen.

    The upper parking lot is posted.

    Actually, I was there doing some research for (GAPS) Gravity Authentication and Preservation Society and also the Dunmore Historical Society in a few different venues: Rocky Glen, the Pennsylvania Coal Company Gravity Railroad, and the Lackawanna and Wyoming Valley electric railroad that all ran through that area! Mt bikes make it much easier to get point to point rather than walking around. Glad to see the park is on the register of historical parks list. It would be great to see something come to that place again! I spent many a day at Rocky Glen as I think everyone in the valley did.

    Nay Aug right? And what area exactly was this at? I'm really familiar with the area (I can basically ride from Nay Aug/Rocky Glen to Dunmore's upper reservoir and toward Elmhurst.

    We the people ...

    mchale20:

    Help me out a little bit, were you refering to the town of Nay Aug by the Greenvile cliffs(Drinker Turnpike) or Nay Aug park near Scranton?

    You'll have to be more specific with your question since that entire area had so much history concerning railroads amd old parks.
    In referance to the PCCGRR, it's trackage level #3 from Avoca and Plane # 4 ran very close to Rocky Glen, the L&WV serviced and ran right througfh Rocky Glen.

    Are you related to Jack or Annie McCale of Scranton?

    Ya, the McCale family, nice people! I raced with Jack Jr. for many years.

    but Rocky Glen was a seperate park.Rocky Glen was never at the Nay Aug location rather it was located off Rt 502 in Moosic. Nay Aug which still exists in near the CMC Hospital on the hill in Scranton.

    To confuse the deal more there was Luna park that is long gone and once located right where RT 81 is today. Luna park was also serivced by the L&WVRR, and one could walk from Luna to Nay Aug across the gorge via a suspension bridge.

    So much history in our areas...
