"Kildoo Falls is located at the bottom of the Slippery Rock Creek Gorge near historic McConnells Mill, part of McConnells Mill State Park. The dense concentration of highlights at this locale also includes a picturesque covered bridge. And, of course, there is the walk to Kildoo Falls, where you cruise along beautiful Slippery Rock Creek then turn up Kildoo Run. A little scrambling along Kildoo Run leads up to the 16-foot curtain-type cataract. While here, take time to check out the historic mill and covered bridge, and perhaps have a picnic at the convenient picnic area at the trailhead." Read more

Kildoo trail can also be hiked as a loop starting at the covered bridge. Cross the bridge and travel on the western side of Slippery Rock Creek. Cross back over the creek at Eckert bridge going back to the covered bridge. Trail blazes are yellow/blue (for North Country Trail) on western side and Yellow only on eastern side. Many rocks and roots, but a nice walk. Stay out of the water, it's extremely dangerous, and yes, the rocks are slippery!
