Whether this is your first whitewater rafting trip or you're an experienced rafter, the Lower Yough (pronounced “Yok”), in the heart of The Laurel Highlands, is a blast!! And what could be a better way to spend a hot summer day then on the river? The Lower Yough is Class III whitewater which means it is fun. It's perfect for those who haven't had prior whitewater experience or for those who have. This is typically a guide assisted trip, but we also offer a guide in boat option or a deluxe trip down Ohiopyle's whitewater.

You'll begin your day at Wilderness Voyageurs' Outfitter Store where you'll check in, receive your life jacket & helmet and meet a couple of your River Guides. From there you'll be transported to the staging area where you'll begin your river trip. Dividing into groups of 4 - 6 people, you'll climb into your rafts for a quick introduction to river running before hitting the water. River safety, paddle strokes, boat maneuvering and what to expect on the waterwill all be covered. From there you'll head to the river and the fun begins! After a few moments of getting comfortable in your raft and listening to your captain's commands, you'll float into the first Class III rapid, Entrance. That sets the stage and gives you a feel for the rest of the day.

The Lower Yough is 7.5 miles of Class III - IV whitewater rapids. Ohiopyle Photo of the Month - enjoying the Lower Yough in the heat of JulyIt is considered a drop & pool river: the rapids are separated by calm deep pools, allowing you to catch your breath and enjoy the scenery.
