Buttermilk Falls is located at 570 Valley Brook Rd, New Florence, PA 15944.
This site features an impressive 45 foot waterfall and scenic woodland. The 48-acre natural area was donated to Indiana County Parks in 1995 by the Keystone-Conemaugh Group, owners of the nearby Conemaugh Generating Station. As a natural area, the site has been set aside to protect both typical and unique plant and animal communities and to protect outstanding examples of natural beauty.
Buttermilk Falls Trail is a 0.5 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near New Florence, Pennsylvania that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.
Lunch will be at New Florence Family Restaurant, 182 Ligonier St, New Florence Pa. 15944
Let's start our walk at the Riverfront Park. I like to meet at the Park because there is plenty of parking, and no meters to deal with. We'll walk through the park, then across the Bridge, and up the street to The Hotel. It'll be a less than 2 mile walk on mostly level, paved sidewalks.
At noon, we'll sit down and enjoy lunch (of your choice) on their outside patio. After lunch, we'll take a 1/2 mile walk back to our vehicles.
Hope you'll be able to join me at this Event!😀
Weather permitting, we'll meet at the Boathouse at North Park at 10:00. We'll walk for about 2 miles starting at the Boathouse, then walking the trail around to the tennis courts and back to the boathouse. We'll do this route 2 times. This will be a paved, level route.
Around 11:00 or so, for those who are interested, we'll sit outside, and have lunch at Over-The-Bar Restaurant.
We will walk at a pace that is comfortable for all.
Hope you will join me!😀
