White Water Rafting Pennsylvania Oct 11 2019 6pm-Oct 14 9pm

Details

Sometimes you must experience a thing to "get it". White water rafting on the Youghiogheny River (or “Yough”, as it is popularly called - pronounced "Yok") in Ohiopyle, PA, is one of those things! Fully 20 miles of the Yough River runs through Ohiopyle State Park. It’s Pine Point’s fourth rafting trip and we are opening our invite to both well-seasoned rafters and newbies, as we're offering two rafting options:

OPTION 1: LOWER YOUGH (no experience necessary)
This river section is a total blast! It involves Class 3 white water, which means fun waves and fast action is punctuated by easy meandering sections at regular water levels. First timers are welcome. The trip will cover 7.5 miles of the river including a lunch stop. Rafting on Sunday 10.13, 10:00AM.

OPTION 2: UPPER YOUGH (experts)
Class 4 -5 white water action, meaning it is high intensity, technical white-water rafting requiring prior experience and an aggressive “go for it” attitude. This trip can be only run on days when there is a water release: Friday 10.11 or Monday 10.14
