Slippery Rock Gorge Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Part of the North Country National Scenic Trail, this is without a doubt one of the most challenging hikes you can do. Though just more than 6.0 miles long, it is very steep, particularly in the northeastern end of McConnells Mill State Park, near Eckert Bridge. It’s worth visiting, though. Slippery Rock Gorge is a place of dramatic scenery— but you’ll want to do this as a shuttle hike.
This area can be very pretty when there’s snow on the ground, but it can also be very difficult and even dangerous to hike in winter. If you’re thinking of hiking when there may be ice, call the park first for an update on the advisability of walking here."
