Excitement for Everyone!

Enjoy the beauty and sheer excitement of the Lower Yough River. The seven and a half miles of Class III and IV rapids will challenge and excite, but not intimidate even the novice rafter. Our highly trained and professional staff will guide you through an exciting experience that you will not soon forget.

This part of the Youghiogheny provides a great rafting experience for individuals as well as scout, youth, and school groups of any size. Plus, we can customize your tour to meet your specific needs.
