On Easter, the husband and I met up with friends of ours for a small hike through McConnell's Mill. One of my favorite things about living in Southwest PA are the various state parks that are within an hour drive from where we live. McConnell's Mill is just a 30 minute drive North on I79 and one of our favorite places to escape from the 'burbs.
We hiked just under 3 miles in a part of the park I have not yet explored. I have a thing for covered bridges and was excited to discover it on the hike. I am not sure how I never knew there was one here but I am glad I now know. It will be a beautiful place to photograph year round.
I know McConnell's Mill is not Pittsburgh but if you live in the city or visiting and need an escape (other than Frick and Schenley parks of course), I recommend heading here. As I said, it is such an easy drive up 79, a major interstate that is incredibly easy to access from the city.
Do you have any state parks relatively close to where you live?
What is one of the favorite things about where you live?
Do you like to hike?
until next time
