Enjoy the Youghiogheny River
Beautiful 479-acre Cedar Creek Park sits along the Youghiogheny River and offers water access for paddlers, boaters, and anglers right along the Great Allegheny Passage. With 20 pavilions, an overnight group camping area, a dog park, extensive playground, three sledding and tubing runs, and an outdoor amphitheater that hosts summer concerts, Cedar Creek Park is a great outdoor recreation asset. Its central feature is a two-mile out-and-back footpath through the deeply-cut Cedar Creek Gorge Interpretive Area that is noteworthy for its wooden suspension bridges, sheer cliff faces, and water cascading down natural shale steps. The foundation of an abandoned saw mill sits partway down this trail. A hiker-biker campground with Adirondack-style shelters and water serves GAP travelers at the east end of the park.
Cedar Creek Park is open from 9:00 am to dusk, seven days a week.
