The Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail is a 70-mile continuous footpath stretching atop the Laurel Ridge. It winds from Ohiopyle, PA to Rt. 56, near Johnstown, PA. The trail affords some great views of the twisting Youghiogheny River from high above Ohiopyle State Park, to the beautiful Conemaugh Gorge, near Johnstown, PA. It is open year-round.The purpose of this page is to provide some basic information to help you plan your hike. Although I make an effort to update this site as often as I can, please keep in mind that trail conditions can change rapidly. If you have recent information that you believe should be added to this page please contact me. And as always, you can contact the Laurel Hill Park Office with any questions about the trail.
