Ohiopyle Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 35 photos

High Points

There are plenty of outdoor activities to partake in Ohiopyle state park. I have recently covered the seventy mile hike of the Laurel highlands hiking trail in four days. With breath taking vistas, fern covered forest beds and wildlife around the corner you can't go wrong. You can kayak or raft three parts of the Youghageny river where white water rules or cycle the smooth rails to trails that can take you from Pittsburgh to washington DC. depending on your stamina. Come over and enjoy.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Heaps of activities, very good state run park.
  • Cons:Can be busy in summer.
  • In a nutshell:Come and enjoy the out doors.

    Wish I could hike this trail but due to some health problems, that's out. Plan to take our RV and camp for a week in the area. Good pictures showing what I am missing.

    Nice page! Ohiopyle is one of my favorite places in the eastern US. I hope to go back this spring/summer.

    Beautiful photos! But 70 miles in 11 hours?? I don't think I can run that fast, much less hike! Your 4 1/2 days sounds a bit more manageable, anyway.

    Looks like a beautiful, yet challenging trek...any 4x4?
