The 48-acre natural area was donated to Indiana County Parks in 1995 by the Keystone-Conemaugh Group, owners of the nearby Conemaugh Generating Station. As a natural area, the site has been set aside to protect both typical and unique plant and animal communities and to protect outstanding examples of natural beauty, according to the park’s website.

How to get there:

Buttermilk Falls is located at 570 Valley Brook Rd, New Florence. See a map here.
