04 May 2017 Summer Friday Activities near Pittsburgh
Looking for a #SummerFriday option for your office mates? Look no further than Ohiopyle. Just over an hour south of the Point, you can sleep in, meet the gang for a leisurely latte, then had out to Ohiopyle and catch a Lower Yough rafting trip at noon.
We have other great group activities at our home base – why not round up a crew for a Stand-Up Paddleboard instruction? We provide the gear, the guides and a healthy lunch!
Need a bit more adventure? Gather some folks for a kayak instruction or try renting mountain bikes for a rip down our world-class mountain bike trails! You could also go rock climbing at the Meadow Run crags or the boulders by Sugarloaf Knob.
For those of you looking for a chill day, recharge with a guided tour down the scenic Middle Yough. The Class I-II rapids on the Middle are fun and splashy, but easy enough to let you relax for a leisurely paddle from Confluence to Ohiopyle. For extra fun, upgrade your watercraft to a duckie (inflatable kayak) or a two-man Shredder.
We’ve also got a fleet of rail-trail rental bikes if you’d rather spend a sunny summer afternoon spinning down the Great Allegheny Passage. Pro tip: ride to Confluence for a cone at the Outflow Soft Freeze or a refreshing summer cocktail at the Lucky Dog Cafe.
Got a long weekend ahead? We’re located at the base of the 76-mile Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail, the perfect trail for a backpacking adventure. Even if you’re not ready to tackle the whole trail in one go, our shuttle service can take you, your gear and your friends to any trailhead you’d like.Whatever adventure you choose, everyone can connect at the Falls City Pub afterwards. Our outdoor patio is the perfect place to swap stories over a cool round of craft beers.
With so many options, you may want to bring your sleeping bag and spend the whole weekend!
