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!
