"Slippery Rock Gorge" Slippery Rock Off The Beaten Path Tip by VeronicaG
Slippery Rock Off The Beaten Path: 1 reviews and 1 photos
Glaciers found their way to Pennsylvania over two million years ago. As they melted, glacial related floods carved gorges into the terrain, tossing huge sandstone boulders along with them. As a result of this type of action, the gorge at Slippery Rock was formed and immense rocks were strewn over the hillsides.
The last glacier visited 23,000 years ago. Due to the combination of rapids, waterfalls and eddys, Slippery Rock Creek has some treacherous stream courses. Although we clamored up the hills and side streams often as children, we never ventured into the creek although it was quite tame with gentle ripples where we explored.
