Middle Yough Family Rafting

Guided Middle Yough Rafting Trip Class I-II

Guided Middle Yough Rafting
Class I-II, Perfect for families

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 a gentle Class I-II mild river trip 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! 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!


This trip begins and ends at our facility in Ohiopyle. You will park and check in at our store on Garrett Street. After you’ve checked in, we will suit you up with your lifejacket. Then we’ll transport you to the launch area on the river. Once you have been introduced to your craft and given a paddle, your river guide will give a safety talk and rafting orientation.


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.

“The team at WV is experienced and dedicated to making sure everyone has a great time out on the river. My best rafting experience by far! Great job guys!”
