Mcconnells Mill: Alpha Pass To Kildoo Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide
"If you want to shorten the hike, park near McConnells Mill either at the mill, which is very limited, or in the parking area above it on McConnells Mill Road. From the mill, visitors of all ages and abilities can enjoy both the Kildoo and Alpha Pass trails. The first 200 yards of the Kildoo Trail is paved and suitable for wheelchairs and strollers. Tours of the mill are conducted (see Nearby Attractions following the Description) and worth spending the time. The covered bridge is charming, and there is an overlook of the dam. McConnells Mill State Park encompasses 2,546 acres of the Slippery Rock Creek Gorge. The geology of this area formed the gorge, providing the path for the 49-mile-long Slippery Rock Creek and the environment for the formation of the many waterfalls and rock outcroppings."
