Tiadaghton in the Gorge
Tiadaghton is an abandoned sawmill town that was located along Pine Creek during the logging days of Pennsylvania. It can be seen in the small, grassy flat along the stream at this view. It once contained a hotel, two general stores, a post office, a sawmill, and homes. Now it consists of about 6 cabins and a campground along the rail-to-trail that follows the canyon bottom. To get to Tiadaghton via automobile requires traversing down a steep and narrow road through the stream valley above the village. An interesting fact to note is that Pennsylvania boasts more ghost towns than does Colorado, most of them from either abandoned mill or mine towns. This view is at the Bradley Wales Picnic Area located along the western rim of the canyon.
