Ohiopyle State Park is traversed by the Youghiogheny River Trail South section of the Great Allegheny Passage, part of a 318-mile system (512 km) of off-road long-distance trails for biking and walking between Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. Visit Ohiopyle State Park for peak fall colors starting in late October, in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, USA. 14 miles of the Youghiogheny River Gorge pass through the park, providing some of the best whitewater boating in the Eastern United States. View impressive rapids from a high rail-trail trestle and from a loop trail around the meander of Ferncliff Peninsula Natural Area, with a side trip to Ohiopyle Falls. Ohiopyle's Kentuck Campground is just 17 minutes from Fallingwater, the famous Kaufmann Residence designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Ohiopyle SP is bisected by Pennsylvania Route 381, about 90 minutes southeast of Pittsburgh via car.
