If you love hiking, you will love the Laurel Highlands area. Visit our links below!
The Laurel Highlands Trail extends for 70 miles from the Conemaugh Gorge near
Johnstown to the Youghiogheny River Gorge at Ohiopyle State Park east of
Uniontown. There are eight overnight areas, each contains five shelters, tent
pads, two comfort stations and a source of water. The overnight areas are not
located directly on the trail, but are set back off the trail to maintain a wilderness
atmosphere. Each shelter can accommodate 6 people. The overnight areas are
situated 8 to 10 miles apart on the trail. Call (724) 455-3744 prior to your trip, for
reservations, which are required. A fee is required for reservations.
The Laurel Highlands trail is blazed every 100 feet with 2"x 5" yellow paint blazes.
Large wood signs mark the access points. There are mileage monuments on the
trail every mile.
