Features to Experience
The terrain is rocky and may be challenging for some visitors. Swim only when and where allowed by the park.
How to Access
Park at the Youghiogheny River Parking lot and cross the Great Allegheny Passage Trail to access the Ferncliff Trail. Follow trail along the river towards the Ohiopyle Falls.
The experience here can be different each time you visit as a small rise in the water level can engulf your rocky stepping stones turning them into rapids while previous rapids are smoothed out by the higher waters. For many visitors this place is a passage leading to Ohiopyle Falls at Ferncliff and both places are combined into one scenic and enjoyable experience.
