Hiking — Ohiopyle State Park

Description

79 miles of hiking trails through mature forests, the Youghiogheny River Trail, five waterfalls, including the impressive Ohiopyle Falls and many other recreation opportunities makes this an outdoor recreation destination for sure. On hot summer days, the cool river temperatures (due to water released from the bottom of the Yough reservoir) and the natural slides on Meadow Run make for a great swimming destination.
