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 gateway to the Laurel Highlands. Close to major metropolitan areas and offering vast choices of activities, Ohiopyle State Park attracts millions of visitors annually. 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. Ohiopyle is the southern gateway into the Laurel Highlands and it represents the beautiful natural resources and unique sense of community that visitors can find throughout the region. Ohiopyle State Park is part of the protection and advocacy for this region by participating in the Laurel Highlands Conservation Landscape Initiative (CLI). This group is a partnership with landowners, community members, non-profit organizations and other stakeholders to protect the natural resources and bring community revitalization.

Trail would be great, but the bridges are out. Until they’re repaired, don’t waste your time.

Amazing trail, amazing views. Definitely challenging on the hills and not too much flat hiking except up in the ridge. Hiked in to the shelter area for an overnight and back the following morning. I think the first big climb on the return hike is the worst..."switchback mountain".

The trail is well maintained and the flashes are well placed. This trail is a pretty steady incline through the woods. Not really any views until the very top where there is also a parking lot and lots of photographers/tourists.

Nice view! Super easy to get to.

loved this trail nice distance and well marked

This was a very pretty out and back hike. Be sure to stop at the Cucumber Falls in the beginning of the hike or you'll miss a hidden gem!

I'm not sure why they're calling this the Sugar Run Sneak Trail. It's actually a section of the Kentuck Trail which intersects the Jonathan Run Trail across from the upper falls area of Jonathan Run, and then follows the Jonathan Run Trail downstream to the GAP. If you then walk a short distance (probably no more than a quarter mile) along the GAP toward Connellsville you can easily get to Sugar Run Falls just off the GAP.

Too crowded and confusing.
