Back from a week end in Ohiopyle Pennsylvania!
What kind of name is “Ohiopyle”?
Ohiopyle is derived from “ohiopehhla” meaning white frothy water. This certainly is an apt name in this area!
Things to Do When not White Water Rafting
OP has great white water rafting opportunities. But even in the off season, there are plenty of activities to pursue.
Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail
The LHHT is 71 miles long. There are shelters along the way for over night stays. It is a simply beautiful trail. It is marked with yellow blazes-you can’t get lost-and concrete markers to tell you where you are (or how far you have to go!)
You can hike to waterfalls around OP. Cucumber Falls is the easiest, because you can drive to it, it’s just down the steps.
OP is a convenient town if you are on the Great Allegheny Passage. The bike trail is far less busy in the off season!
