Great trail for a day hike. I would travel counterclockwise and there are a few areas where you can venture away from the trail towards the river for some great scenery of the rapids. If you are in the area go ahead and put this on your list!

I did this hike out to Mile 0 after starting at 70 the week prior. The hills are rough, but some beautiful views. The coming down to the shelter from mile 7 is brutal!
An awesome hike! These last 6.5 miles, in my opinion, aren’t as a beautiful walk as the rest of the trail but still beautiful. Be sure to wear good shoes and carry water!

I loved this trail one of my favorites so far just enough of a challenge for me only issue is part of trail the bridge is out and was never replaced so had to walk thru the water

Fun trail next to the water!! Great views! Super busy and saw multiple snakes which def not a fan of.

A little tough to follow the first half mile, although a beautiful run. The rest is easy until the climb. A good run.

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.

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.

Great challenge. As a beginner it was very tough. But we made it to the 6.4 mile spent the night then back out for some burgers and icecream at a great little place by the viewing spot. Took everything we had to get back. Not a good beginner trail but great views none the less!

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

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

Amazing trail, amazing views. Definitely challenging on the hills and not too much flat hiking except up in the ridge. Hiked in to the shelter area for an overnight and back the following morning. I think the first big climb on the return hike is the worst..."switchback mountain".

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.

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 :).

I've been hiking this portion of the LHHT for years. If you start on the trailhead behind Falls City Pub and go about 2 1/2 miles, you'll come to an absolutely beautiful lookout. This trail is definitely not for a new hiker and sturdy shoes are a must.

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.

Go counterclockwise for the best progression of scenery.

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.
