Description

The Kildoo Trail starts at the covered bridge and dam and runs south to Eckert Bridge. There aren't any spurs off the trail and it is blazed well-enough that you won't get lost.

This trail is tough to hike with the boulders and roots, but it has access to large boulders sitting within the rapids and creek, offering some vantage points not gotten from the Slippery Rock Gorge Trail.

Flora & Fauna

The park asks that visitors do not pick wildflowers, stating that many are rare or endangered. However, they do not specifically explain which ones you might find while on the trail.

Yes, December 13th and we were in shorts and shirts.  At 65 degrees, we were all just a bit too warm even.

Great trail with great scenery. My dog loved it as well. We had to park in a parking lot about .3 miles away which was all uphill to get back. 2.7mi — 1h 30m
