Crossing the 663-foot-long Ohiopyle High Bridge over the Youghiogheny River 115 feet below.
The bridge is located in Pennsylvania’s Ohiopyle State Park and is part of the Great Allegheny Passage or GAP trail. Dating back to 1912, this deck girder bridge used to be a part of the Western Maryland Railway and is frequented by people who enjoy watching rafters tackle Class III and IV whitewater. One of the famous rapids below is known as Railroad Rapid since it is close to the trail.
In the stunning setting of the Laurel Highlands and photographed at autumn’s peak, the Yough River, as it is fondly called, divides Ohiopyle State Park and is the premier whitewater spot on the East Coast.
