Route 381, Ohiopyle, PA
With end-of-year vacation scheduled, this mid-week trip will go to Ohiopyle State Park to photograph various water flows and waterfalls at Meadow Run, Cucumber Run, and maybe the Youghiogheny river in between them. Hoping for snow and ice formations to add to the creative possibilities. Depending upon interest, abilities, and weather, three approaches can be considered for this trip:
(1) Park at Meadow Run Trailhead, photograph nearby, then drive and park at Cucumber parking lot to photograph Cucumber Falls (30 feet high) and nearby.
(2) Hike the Meadow Run Trail one-way (2.9 miles) and car pool back.
(3) Hike out-n-back the Meadow Run Trail (5.8 miles).
Meet at Meadow Run Trail Parking lot
