Ohiopyle is a borough located in Fayette County in southwest Pennsylvania. The full-time population of the tiny town was only 77 as of the 2000 census. However, it's often full of tourists due to its proximity to the Ohiopyle State Park. Located at the southern portion of Laurel Ridge, Ohiopyle State Park encompasses approximately 20,500 acres of rugged land and serves as the southern gateway to the Laurel Highlands. The spectacular Youghiogheny (pronounced yaw-ki-gay-nee) River Gorge is the centerpiece for Ohiopyle State Park. Called the Yough or "Yawk" by seasoned rafters, it provides some of the best whitewater rafting in the eastern United States. It offers class 3 and 4 rapids and is best for experienced boaters or guided trips. The Middle Yough has class 1 and 2 rapids and is better for beginners. Other activities at Ohiopyle include hiking, biking, viewing the Ohiopyle Falls, exploring Ferncliff Peninsula, picnicking, backpacking Laurel Highlands Trail, or camping at Kentuck Campground. Nearby places to visit include Tharp Knob, the Great Allegheny Passage and Cucumber Falls. The small village of Ohiopyle has shops and services that cater to the tourists.
