The One Magical Place That’s Like Pittsburgh’s Own Garden Of Eden
Meander along tree-lined paths, past breathtaking waterfalls, and high above acres of green. Southwestern Pennsylvania claims some of the most beautiful landscape in the country but one place, sprawled across nearly 21,000 acres, just might deserve the title of Pittsburgh’s Garden of Eden.
Embrace the stunning natural beauty of Ohiopyle State Park, a massive park a little over an hour from Pittsburgh that beckons adventurers, nature enthusiasts, and hikers.
Feel the mist of cool water as you walk behind the 30 foot Cucumber Falls, a tranquil spot surrounded by lush green.
Listen to the sound of Ohiopyle State Park's other waterfalls - Ohiopyle Falls and Johnathan Run Falls - as the water swirls and tumbles into picturesque pools of water.
Slip into or simply watch the rushing water of Meadow Run Natural Water Slide, rocks that date back 300 million years.
Soak up the sights around you, including dew dangling from a smattering of growing mushrooms...
And vibrant flowers that decorate the many hiking and biking trails that crisscross the state park.
Countless wildlife call Ohiopyle State Park home. Watch as butterflies float from one flower to the next.
Stroll along one of the nearly 80 miles of trails. Follow the markers for the half mile Oakwoods Trail, one of the park's easiest hiking trails, that will take you through a "mature hardwood forest."
Spend a leisurely day exploring Ohiopyle State park or spend a few nights camping out at Kentuck Campground, which features tents, yurts, and cottages.
Ohiopyle State Park promises plenty of adventure for visitors but it also provides the opportunity for quiet reflection and appreciation for nature's beauty.
