Wampum Chapter

Building, maintaining, & promoting the North Country Trail in Beaver & Lawrence Counties, Pennsylvania.

Trail Range

This section is rich with industrial history, featuring a reclaimed strip mine, ruins of a historic gristmill, abandoned coal mines, and an old stone lime kiln last used in the 1930s. Amazing opportunities for hiking and photography in the glacial-carved Slippery Rock Gorge at McConnells Mill State Park.
