Wildflowers of Hell’s Hollow

Experience the beauty of McConnells Mill with a walk in the lovely Hell’s Hollow valley. Despite
the name, it is one of the most charming places to experience the wildflowers in the park. We
will identify and discuss the unique natural history of some of the spring wildflowers along Hell
Run, perhaps trillium, wild phlox, trout lily, hepatica, and others. Allow 15 minutes to get to Hells
Hollow if coming from the old mill through the covered bridge. Join park staff for a mile stroll on
an easy trail starting at the Hell’s Hollow parking lot, mostly level, with an optional staircase to
view the waterfall at the end. Dress for the weather, bring your own water, snack. Some rocks
may be slick, wear sturdy footwear. From the west, the Hell’s Hollow parking lot on Shaffer
Road is about four miles south of the Sheetz on 422 & 388.
