There are 3 rafting options available. All are fully guided.
Lower Yough: Must be 12 or older to choose this option. 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. The 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. All tours include transportation to and from the river, all the equipment necessary for the day, and a riverside deli-style lunch. See

Middle Yough: Recommended for all scouts under 12. The calm and scenic Middle Yough’s Class I and II rapids are a great introduction to whitewater rafting. By paddling the gentle waters of this nine-mile section of river, you will enjoy the unending beauty and wildlife of the Laurel Highlands. The rafts will seat from three to six rafters comfortably. All tours include transportation from the check-in area, all the equipment necessary for the day, and a riverside deli-style lunch. Additionally, guides accompany all tours to provide river assistance and entertainment, and to answer any questions you might have along the way. See
