Beautiful indeed,one of my favorite places.Park at the mill,walk the path that starts to the left of the covered bridge.About 200 yards down the path there is a wooden bridge and from there look left at the water fall cascading over the rocks.That may well be The most beautiful place on earth.

WOW!!!!!!!McConnell's Now thats a place that brings back some memories. Senior skip day from Slippery Rock. Class of 73. WOOHOO (ahem) It was also a place of meditation for me. Love the sounds of the water fall and a wonderful place where I could write poetry and short stories.

...one the best places on earth! I love feeling the ages through the stones; the rush of the water; the wisdom of the trees.
This is a power place.

Many times over the years, I've been there with a wide variety of people. Just two summera age,we introduced out new sister-in-law from California to this place. She was in awe."It's so green" was her comment. She couldn't stop taking pictures.

May it never go away.......

A beautiful spot indeed. I'm an avid outdoors person and love photographing the local scenery of Pennsylvania. I must make my way across the state some time and have a look in person at this site! Thanks for posting it!

My Dad [ Harold Logan] saved a mans life there in the earl 60's. The man had fallen in and could not swim. Dad was a strong swimmer and dove in. They drug both of them up the bank using jumper cables out of the back of Dad's 59 Plymouth.

I remember McConnell's Mill. Seem to remember quite a number of people drowned swimming below the dam. Strong undertow. Also remember a covered wooden bridge in the area but after over half a century I'm not sure exactly where it was located. Another Butler landmark.
