Inscription. This Indian path intersects here. It led from the Great Island (Lock Haven) past the Indian town of Muncy, and then it followed the gap between these mountains to join the Great Warriors Path at Shickshinny. This path was used by Count Zinzendorf in 1742 after leaving Otstonwakin (Montoursville). There he had met with Madame Montour to secure her help in introducing the gospel to tribes under her influence.
