McConnells Mill State Park

McConnells Mill State Park

The loop that I chose started at a covered bridge near the mill, followed Slippery Rock Creek to the next bidge, and then returned to the mill. The whole while, I was surrounded by rushing water, towering rock walls, fly-fishermen, and tons of boulders.
