This hike winds its way through the Ohiopyle that is so well known to so many people. You’ll explore Ferncliff Natural Area, a one-hundred-acre peninsula that’s a National Natural Landmark. You’ll likely see kayakers and rafters tackle rapids, get a bird’s-eye view of the Youghiogheny (Yough) River from an old railroad bridge, and wander almost under the 30-foot Cucumber Falls. Chances are you’ll run into other hikers, too, even on weekdays, but the sheer beauty of this place will leave you willing to share.
