Middle Yough

Kid Friendly rafting on the Middle Yough ages 5+


Guided Middle Yough Family Trip

Between Confluence and Ohiopyle lies The Middle Yough,a step milder than the Lower Yough and appropriate for children as young as 5. It is fun, relaxing and beautiful as you float through Ohiopyle State Park. Class I-II means there are some ripples and a little splashy water, but no large whitewater rapids. Plan for a relaxing day as you paddle down the river, dropping in for an occasional swim and taking in the sights. Don't forget your sunscreen! On those sunny days you'll want it.

Join the guided Middle Yough family river trip if you want to concentrate on fun and leave details (like lunch) to us! The trip is a guide assisted trip, so you will not have a guide in your boat. The guides will be nearby to help direct you through the current and down the river. They'll take care of lunch, answer questions about Ohiopyle State Park and the area and bring along the family fun bag! Shhh....it's a surprise!

Ohiopyle Family Rafting Middle Yough

This trip begins and ends at our facility in Ohiopyle.  You will check in at our store on Garrett Street.  This is where you will park your vehicle.  After you have checked in, we will suit you up with your lifejacket.  All Aboard! Then it is time to hop in a bus or a van and we will transport you to the launch area on the river, where your boats are awaiting you.  Once you have been introduced to your craft and given a paddle, your river guide will give a safety talk and rafting orientation.  Now it is time to head to the river.

The trip is run in rafts, but for only $10 you may upgrade your watercraft to a duck, canoe or shredder. We highly recommend previous canoe experience before tackling the Middle Yough. There is enough current through the Class II areas that navigation takes some skill.

There are a number of other ways to experience the Middle Yough:
