Get around

See

  • Fallingwater. Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous structure is located just north of town.
  • Kentuck Knob. Another of Frank Lloyd Wright's homes, this one is located west of town.
  • Ohiopyle Falls. Located right next to the town, the falls are the most easy to experience of any in the park. A overlook off the main road is perched just above the 20-foot falls. They're not particularly tall, but their power and beauty shouldn't be underestimated.
  • Cucumber Falls. A 30-foot tall waterfall located just outside of town, just off of SR 2019 (look for the pull-out, then hike down the short trail).
  • Ferncliff Peninsula National Natural Landmark. Located on a peninsula formed by a meander in the Youghiogeny River, this is a unique habitat which contains many plants that are more common to West Virgina and Maryland than to Pennsylvania, due to the deep gorge which is slightly warmer than the surrounding hills and the river dropping off the seeds it picked up to the south. The peninsula is easily reached from the town of Ohiopyle by walking across the large bridge near the railroad tracks.

Do

  • Waterslides.
  • Whitewater Rafting.
