Beautiful scenery along the river

This one of the sections of the Yough River Trail that I walk. It is a nice flat trail to enjoy at any time of the day. I walk either in mornings or evenings to avoid other walkers or runners. I see deer and other small wild animals often. I start my walk in Buena Vista and go to the Dravo campground. I enjoy sitting on a bench or at a table under the pavilion once I’m there before I walk back to Buena Vista. I have camped here many times. I’ve met some nice thru-riders that camp there on their way to Washington DC.

Went only 8 miles, but even after rain trail was fairly dry for road biking. Many road bikers going East from Boston trail head. Really enjoyed trail. More trash receptacles would be nice.

Great overnight camping trip with my oldest son and his friend from West Milton to Ohio Pyle on Yough River in '99. It was a little bit of an obstacle course for us back at this time -- but the entire trail was quite an adventure.

Bypass the "unremarkable urban connector " above by not crossing the 15th Street Bridge. Instead take the River Road into/from Mckeesport .

Maybe it's different to ride a bike, but the area in McKeesport is hardly a trail, more like a paved sidewalk through a rough, noisy part of town. Won't be back.

Biked Yough river trail with my son Bobby and one of his friends back in 2000 from McKeesport to Ohiopyle. A memorable/wonderful experience; nice first day, quite a bit of rain day 2.

My son and I biked from West Newton with camping gear to the Historic Dravo Cemetery and stayed the night at the camp ground. About 9 miles one way. We didn't have room for all of the gear so we left behind our blanket and pillows. Big mistake. We were uncomfortable and cold all night. Even thought of heading back at 2am..but we toughed it out. Even though it was miserable it will be a memory never forgotten.. We plan on doing it again just better prepared....

Good trail, nicely maintained... Not a great area of town... Beginning of the trail goes through shady neighborhoods... Upside is it is very quiet, and you don't have to battle many other hikers/bikers... Ok once, doubt I would return... Better trails elsewhere...
