Easy Going River Trips

Middle Yough River Trips & Ohiopyle Family Rafting

The Middle Youghiogheny section is made for the perfect gentle DIY river trip with rentals or a day of family rafting. It is a gentle Class 1 & 2 mild river trip through beautiful Ohiopyle State Park. Class 1 & 2 means there are some ripples and a little splashy water, but no large whitewater rapids.  This trip is appropriate for children as young as 5.  You can also bump your trip up from Easy to Relaxed with a Middle Yough Rental. Because this is such a calm stretch of the river, Wilderness Voyageurs rents rafts, duckies, SUPs, shredders, and sit-on-top kayaks for a DIY adventure experience!


Cheat River Narrows Rafting in West Virginia

Nearby, in West Virginia is the Cheat River Narrows section. If you are interested in a fun day on the river without big rapids, this is the trip. It’s great for families with children 8 and older. Depending on water levels, it’s a 5- to 7-mile trip on the more gentle Class 1 & 2 waters. Stop for a riverside lunch, jump off the rocks, play in the water, and have a great day on the river!
