Ohiopyle and Cucumber Falls
Considered to be two of the crown jewels of Ohiopyle State Park, Ohiopyle and Cucumber Falls can be accessed via a 3-mile loop that makes up the Rise of the Falls self-guided hike. Go to the visitor’s center at the trailhead for a comprehensive guide that explains the geological tug of war between water and rock that is responsible for the creation of these shimmering beauties.
One of the cool things about Cucumber Falls is that ou can walk underneath it via a large rock ledge. The trail itself follows an old rail bed that once delivered coal from the town of Stonerville to Western Maryland Railway cars. Today, that trail is lush with old-growth timber: hemlock, chestnut, oak and beech, and in springtime it yields an abundance of wildflowers.
