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.

We started at Ohiopyle and went to Cucumber Falls, then Great Gorge, to Kentuck, to Johnathan Run, to GAP. It's about an 8 mile loop and beautiful! The last 2.8 miles is flat and easy.
