Deep wilderness, rapids and bridges. (9 miles) The trail north of Ohiopyle begins with the Low and High Bridges. Between them if the Ferncliff Nature Area and trails on either side of the river show the the falls the prompted George Washington to abandon his all-water route to the forks of the Ohio in 1754. As you continue north, you will notice markers two letters on each. These are emergency take-out points for the various rapids downstream. Take a side trail down to see. There are no trailside facilities along this section and between Connellsville and Ohiopyle you'll cross only two back roads. Very highly recommended.
