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.

Overall, nice trail with pretty views.

this isn’t much of a hike if you’re okay with some slick rocky stairs.. the falls are not far from the parking lot - instant gratification / photo op — easy and worth the winding ride to get there!

a little muddy with recent rain. wear good shoes as the trail is uneven a d rocky. Great water flows from the mountain.

Very good workout. The trail was well managed, but possibly mismarked, distance wise. The map on alltrails shows 11.2 miles, but the turnaround point at the campsite is not until 6.3 miles (and a couple hundred feet more), making it about 12-13 miles total out and back. The miles markers on the trail support this, but the map and my phone's GPS dictated closer to 11 miles (possibly inaccurate due to lost signal and cloud cover). Who is right? Unsure, but it was a heck of a workout either way. Nice scenery, bring good hiking boots. Only one or two places for a good lookout. I was warned about snakes, but did not see any.

Great Trail can be confusing because there are some turn offs that make the trail shorter. We started at the water slide parking lot then made way toward Cascade falls. Great Views

Very nice payoff with minimal effort. The waterfall is pretty especially during the fall with all the fall colors.

Two choices. Bug spray or patience. You will need a ton of either. Pro tip: If you bring the patience you get an arm workout also.

Loved this trail. Seems there's more then one way to go. We chose the path that took us closest to the water's edge and even the lookout for Youghiogheny Falls. Quite muddy in some areas but that should be expected due to rain. Saw many people enjoying numerous places to get into the river for a cool dip.

Thoroughly enjoyed. Beautiful sundappled walk. Would consider this more easy than moderate. Some areas a bit muddy.

Very muddy trail after the rain...couldn’t even see my boots there was so much mud on them. Great water falls though, seems like they never end.

not bad .... a bit muddy. I went from meadow run trailhead by the bridge all the way to kentuck trail, but dont follow my map. For some reason all trails tracked me going 37 miles...which is not true, it was about 6 round trip. Not sure what my GPS was doing. I took lots of breaks but it only took me 2.5 hours.

I enjoyed this one! Any trail with a decent elevation change and some pretty views makes me happy. This was a decent work out.

Great hike. The cascades are fantastic. There’s enough incline/decline that I would call this an easy to moderate hike. Good for families with children 5yrs and up. My 7yr old would of loved all the rock hopping as parts of the trail were muddy. I was able to get around just fine in those parts. I had heard it had rained the past few days so I thought the trail was in pretty good shape considering. Saw a couple water snakes around the rocks in the river. Probably northern water snakes(non-venomous) but I’m no expert. I just stayed clear. Would do it again if given the opportunity.

Trail is reopened new bridges have been built. 4/2019.

My husband and I hiked this trail in 5 1/2 days, 5 nights starting May 4, 2019. We hiked north bound starting in Ohiopyle and ending at the Seward Trailhead. I stopped recording at mile marker 65. The trail from point to point is 70 miles. We logged an additional 5 miles going off trail to scenic overlooks and campsites. This is a gem of a trail. Well maintained and marked. Shelters are clean and well maintained. Beautiful fun trails. Elevation gain first two days was challenging.

I visited this place a couple of weeks ago and It was a good small hike. The water falls were beautiful. Highly recommend it.

We hiked this 2 days ago and decided to cut off the last 1.6 miles to go a little easier on our younger hikers. The length is a bit off. Starting at the trailhead at the picnic area to Jonathan Run trail and back was 7.26 miles according to my suunto. We didnt head off trail at anytime. The incline will definitely wake up your legs!! Nicely kept trail some muddy spots but not terrible.
