DescriptionOhiopyle is part of the Laurel Highlands. Once a hunting area of the Delaware, Shawnee and Iroquois, the area was named Ohiopehhle by the Native Americans for the white frothy water of the Youghiogheny River. Ohiopyle State Park provides overlook platforms to the falls. It also is a trailhead for the Great Allegheny Passage and the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail.
Ohiopyle is best known as a popular starting point for white-water rafting. Trips can be arranged through several outfitters in town.
