||Cummings Township was organized in 1832, out of territory taken from Mifflin and Brown townships. Cummings Township was named after John Cummings, who was one of the associate judges at the time. One of the larger townships, it is located in western Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, in the heart of the Pine Creek Valley. Pine Creek Valley is well known to residents of Pennsylvania for it’s big game hunting, fishing, canoeing, and now the best hiking and biking in the East thanks to the Pine Creek Rail Trail. (USA Today touts the "Trail" as one of the 10 best biking trails in the world !) The surface of a large portion of the Township is rough and mountainous, with bold and picturesque scenery along the branches of Pine Creek. Tenting, camping, swimming, ice fishing and Rving are at their best at Little Pine State Park three miles north of the village of Waterville. Waterville at the confluence of Big Pine and Little Pine Creeks is Cummings Township’s "hub" for refueling vehicles, equipment, the body and acquiring supplies.
