Ohiopyle State Park

Located at the southern reaches of the Laurel Ridge, Ohiopyle State Park encompasses approximately 20,500 acres of rugged natural beauty and serves as the southern gateway to the Laurel Highlands. Passing through the heart of the park, the rushing waters of the Youghiogheny [yaw-ki-gay-nee] River Gorge are the centerpiece for Ohiopyle. The “Yough” [yawk] provides some of the best whitewater boating in the eastern United States, as well as spectacular scenery.

Everyone from Ohiopyle State Park and Friends of Ohiopyle is friendly, helpful, and appreciative. They give clear instructions for each trail crew at the morning meeting, and encourage everyone to be safe with use of tools, vests, gloves, hydration, etc. It's fun to contribute to the maintenance of a great park!
