Ohiopyle Rides Professional Review and Guide
"Ohiopyle offers the cyclist three exciting tours of the Youghiogeny River gorge and surrounding Laurel Highlands. The easy out-and-back ramble follows the gorgeous Youghiogeny Rail-Trail to Confluence, where the ramble can be extended with a short road ride to the picture-perfect Lower Humbert Covered Bridge. The challenge and classic routes offer numerous difficult climbs throughout the Laurel Highlands that will test even the fittest cyclist. Plan your classic ride as a two-day outing and camp for the night in peaceful Laurel Hill State Park. Cruise Indiantown Road, one of the premier biking roads in Somerset County. Enjoy lunch at the cyclist-friendly River’s Edge Cafe overlooking the cool Yough River. Spend additional time in Ohiopyle and test your nerves with a white-water rafting trip down the Yough’s Class III and IV rapids. Relax the pace with a visit to Fallingwater, architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece built over a waterfall and one of the most famous private homes ever built."
