We did this the first year I went along, and it was a complete blast! It's a guided tour, and don't worry if you're not experienced, they have multiple difficulty levels, so you can even take children! We went with the Laurel Highlands rafting company.
Laurel Caverns is Pennsylvania's largest cave, it has over three miles of passages! The guided tour is super neat, and the caves are incredible! They are so beautiful, our friend proposed to his girlfriend in these caves!
I'm not sure exactly where this is at, but just ask anyone in town, and I'm sure they'll point you in the right direction!
We're always sure to visit this spot, because the view is absolutely stunning! You can see over the entire town of Ohiopyle! This is a great spot to take pictures of the whole family!
In the town of Ohiopyle, the river that runs through it is the main attraction. This is the river that you go white water rafting on. However, if you start up by where the bridge is, you can walk across the river (this is not for children, the current can get pretty strong!). Us girls walked over the bridge, while the men walked the river. The bridge offers spectacular views! Which brings me to our next one...
Like I said before, this bridge offers spectacular views! The above picture is a photo I took of the bridge from below. But once you get on top of the bridge, you get spectacular photos like these...
Once you've crossed the bridge to the other side of the river, there is a biking and hiking trail. There is also a bunch of rocks jutting out into the river, and it's a great spot for taking pictures, exploring and even picnic-ing!
The Meadow Run natural waterslide is a must-visit! Above is my husband going down it! It then empties into a beautiful pool, with a large rock that people were jumping off of.
Parking is available adjacent to the SR 381 bridge crossing Meadow Run. Follow the signs to Meadow Run Trail, or follow the path at the back of the parking lot. The address is PA-381, Ohiopyle, PA 15470.
This adorable little general store/restaurant/ice cream shop, is right across the street from the river, in the center of town. It's the perfect spot if you want to get out of the heat, and eat something other than campfire food!
This summer was pretty dry,so Cucumber Falls wasn't as roaring as it usually is, but it was still fun! We even went behind the waterfall!
Peace Love and Ohiopyle Pennsylvania
