Campbell’s Ledge is a massive cliff that rises 700 feet above Duryea. Take a hike to the top on a clear day, and you’ll see 30 miles of the Wyoming Valley and Susquehanna River stretched out below.
Campbell’s Ledge is surrounded by local folklore. Early settlers called it Dial Rock because of the way it catches full sunlight at noon. Some believe that the cliff took its name from a local legend of a man named Campbell who jumped off the edge of the cliff to avoid being captured by Native Americans. Others suggest that it’s named after local writer Thomas Campbell.
Campbell’s Ledge is privately owned, but public hiking and hunting are allowed. Trails are accessible off of Coxton Road. ATVs, off-roading vehicles, mountain bikes, and horses are not permitted.
