Hike To The Mill and Back - Wampum Chapter Hike At McConnell's Mill SP
3 miles, moderate to advanced hiking; wet, rocky #Hike100NCT Meet at 1:00 PM at the Cheeseman Rd. parking lot of McConnell’s Mill State Park just past Breakneck Campground (1757 Cheeseman Rd Portersville, Pa 16051), 2 miles from Rt. 19. We’ll hike a loop from Eckert Bridge, up Slippery Rock Creek on the Kildoo Trail to the Mill, cross the covered bridge, then back to Eckert Bridge via the North Country Trail for about a three-mile round trip. *Sturdy footwear is recommended. This is a rocky trail - a little more challenging walk than we are used to doing. *Bring your own personal beverage and/or snack if you wish. http://www.dcnr.pa.gov/StateParks/FindAPark/McConnellsMillStatePark/Pages/default.aspx

This Meetup is for the Pennsylvania Chapters and affiliated organizations of the North Country National Scenic Trail to invite people to hike the trail with them in Pennsylvania, and to invite NCT enthusiasts to the meetings, trail work sessions, outreach events, and trail-related social activities that they plan. All are welcome to join in.

Although the Meetup is geographically based in Clarion, about in the center of the state's trail range, volunteers from the Allegheny National Forest, Clarion, Butler, and Wampum NCTA chapters, as well as the Davis Hollow Cabin at Moraine, the Butler Outdoor Club, and the Rachel Carson Trails Conservancy will all be posting information about their planned activities.

Three hundred miles of the North Country National Scenic Trail wind their way through Pennsylvania, from the New York to the Ohio borders. You can find a good general description of the route of the NCT through the state, as well as links to maps and the chapters' websites here on the NCTA's Pennsylvania page https://northcountrytrail.org/trail/states/pennsylvania/
