Middle Yough Overnight

Sep 24 - Sep 25

Between Confluence and Ohiopyle lies The Middle Yough, a step milder than the Lower Yough and appropriate for children as young as 5. It is a gentle Class I-II mild river trip through Ohiopyle State Park. Class I-II means there are some ripples and a little splashy water, but no large whitewater rapids.
