Conewango is an Iroquois name meaning 'below the riffles.' The Conewango Creek was the waterway trail leading to the 'Forbidden Path' of the Seneca Nation, so called because it was guarded so carefully. The Native Americans were hostile to anyone who dared enter the path because it was a direct line to the 'Land of Lakes', their special domain. in the 1800's the creek became a logging highway as vast log rafts were lashed together and floated downstream to Pittsburgh for sale. Today the Conewango is still rural and wild, a haven for wildlife and for those who wish to paddle back in time.
