Hell Run Natural Bridge
NABSQNO 17T 565420 - 4530870
Lawrence County. Hell Run Natural Bridge is one of three natural bridges found in the Hell's Hollow area in McConnells Mill State Park. It is located on the Slippery Rock Gorge Trail about two miles from the trailhead at Hells Hollow parking area. The trail passes over the bridge. Two similar but smaller natural bridges are found along this trail.
The name slippery rock is believed to have originated from an old Indian trail that crossed a shelf of sandstone near to a natural oil seep. This made the rock extremely slippery and gave its name to the creek as well as a town and even a university. The oil has long since disappeared.
The bridge has a span of abut 10 ft and a height of about 4 ft.
