Fantastic trail. Took the advice of some other reviews to hike counterclockwise for the views- incredible!

Not very well marked at all. Got lost a couple times and eventually turned around.

Perfect warm up trail. Bit muddy when I hiked but the group I was with started at ferncliff, and it was a great trail to stretch the legs on and enjoy the forest scenery.

Muddy but fun. I have nothing bad to say about this trail but it does get a little challenging during parts.

Excellent trail with beautiful scenery. Came from high bridge and hit cucumber falls at the end and it was well worth it. had the gorge trail to ourselves, but the falls themselves were a little crowded since it's a popular spot right next to the road.

Great rolling trail following the river. the last bit has a decent elevation change. Make sure to stop at Cucumber Falls.

Easy trip to a nice falls. If you like easier hikes, this is a good one and give it a five. No altitude with views, but still a nice break on a road trip. I added a little over an extra mile by walking down to the river and back.

Nice, easy trail. Very little traffic until I got near the falls. This was my 1st hike at Ohiopyle, looking forward to alot more.

Beautiful views of two waterfalls. Recommend to wear hiking boots / shoes with better traction than just sneakers. If you want to get close to the falls, footage gets sloppy (as expected).

Rain was light and steady but the trail was great. 50 degrees on the 1st week in dec 17.

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

Nice view! Super easy to get to.

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!

Too crowded and confusing.

Easy, fun hike. The sites are beautiful and you can hear the river even if you can't see it. It gives a great view of the river when you can see it.

We were immediately greeted with wildflowers pulling into the trailhead parking lot. The trail is rated moderate and is a 2.9 mile loop. My main interest in choosing this trail was seeing the natural slides. We must have taken a wrong turn because we ended at what I thought was a dead end. After looking at a map when we were back in the car, we were actually only 200 meters upstream from the slide… so close! Regardless this was a beautiful secluded walk that ran along a babbling stream. For more visuals of ohiopyle go to sleepydog.dog

The trailhead for this is right off of Main Street. After enjoying the temptations of greasy pizza we decided to walk off the indulgence. The trail takes you along the other side of the Youghiogheny River. This is a great trail because you get the views of the Ohiopyle Falls without all of the mouth breathers ruining the view. This is classified as an easy trail, and doesn’t take too much energy to complete. However, if you have trouble walking on uneven slippery terrain, then think twice before going on this trail. The trail is lined with bushes of rodadendrain and ferns with rocky terrain. The highlight of this trail was towards the end, there’s a large rock were you can relax to the sound of water rushing by you. Follow us at sleepydog.dog to learn more about Ohiopyle!

The trail is an easy hike, although there were several rather muddy areas and some slippery rocks. While you could hear the Youghiogheny River for most of the hike, and could see a great deal of it at the beginning (or end) of the loop - depending on which way you started - for most of the hike the views of the river are mostly blocked by trees. There are interpretive plaques along the way which have some information on the local wildlife and habitat management. It smelled wonderfully fresh as I walked and for as busy as the falls were on a Sunday afternoon in August, I only came across about 10 other hikers. The hike is almost all shaded, so for a hot day, that was a plus. The trail is in Ohiopyle State Park and there are LOTS of things to do in the area. This is a lovely, child- and dog-friendly hike, if you don't mind the woods and a little mud :).

Nice hike out to cucumber falls will do this one again.

Great views of the falls

After some searching, I located the trailhead at the Cucumber picnic area. Near the beginning, a bridge is washed out so you do have to cross the stream. I enjoy doing that though! A little further, you'll cross a road and eventually end up at Cucumber Falls. From there, I'm not sure which way you're supposed to go. I walked down to the fall and then back up. There were two trails that lead up a hill, but neither were marked so I turned back as I had already been hiking for a few hours. The park service really needs to step up their game when it comes to marking their trails.

Really wish the trails were marked a little more clearly at Ohiopyle. The entrance to the trail is clearly marked, but then you just kind of guess which way to go. I definitely took a wrong turn at some point, but it's still a beautiful area. I'd say this is more of an easy trail than "moderate" as it's labeled. The views of the water were excellent!

Go counterclockwise for the best progression of scenery.

Jersey folks loved the mud and the rushing water
