View from Train Station and Low Ohiopyle Bridge

Adjacent to the town of Ohiopyle is a former railroad station converted into a Laurel Highlands Visitor Center with outdoor benches on a plaza leading to the Low Ohiopyle Bridge that offers a scenic view of the Youghiogheny River bending to round Ferncliff Peninsula. This is the Great Allegheny Passage Trail so be mindful of bike riders passing as you admire the river rapids below the bridge. The Low Ohiopyle Bridge has a nice curvature and bend in elevation that is fun to bike ride across. To your left is the Youghiogheny River passing by Ferncliff Peninsula and in the far distant the mists can be visible rising from the Ohiopyle Falls. In the summer you may find swimmers nearby. Once you cross the bridge a wooden staircase leads down to the Ferncliff Trail.
