When you RSVP call 1-800-472-3846 and let them know you are with my party and they will take your payment.  With the discount it will be $68, tell them you with "Doug Hanford's" trip, or give them invoice number "P26192" Sadly they changed the start time for the Cheat River this year, so instead we will do the Lower Yough in the spring when the waters are a little higher then in the summer.  We are going to do the 10:30 start time! 

payment option  use this promo code "PEFE" and pay by 4/30, and you will receive 15% off the cost of the rafting trip!

 This is a guided trip through class II,III, and IV rapids, with lunch provided at the halfway point on the river.  This is a great trip for newbies and experienced rafters alike.  You do NOT have to be a strong swimmer, or a swimmer at all, to go on this trip.  Overnight camping is located is also located within Ohiopyle.! 

This is a rain, or shine, event.  We will be meeting at a Park and Ride on I-70 for those looking to carpool, more information will be provided.  This event will fill up, so don't wait till the week before to register.

Enjoy a calm and scenic trip on the Middle Youghiogheny's Class l and ll rapids. Gentle enough for the young and enjoyable for the young at heart. Excitement for everyone describes the Lower Youghiogheny's Class III rapids. They will challenge and excite but not intimidate novice rafters. Want more of a challenge? Try the Cheat or Upper Yough. 

Or try zip lining. Experience the gravity-defying thrill of flying through the trees. Looking for a place to stay? We have 3 quaint Guest House's. Prefer camping?
