In Ohiopyle, PA canoeing started with professor Edward Coleman of Indiana University. Convinced by his students to sponsor outings along the Youghiogheny, he applied his smarts to creating fiberglass-decked canoes, C-2’s, in 1962. These canoes cut through the water more than the crevice that cuts into Dimple Rock’s chin. Through companies like the Youghiogheny Canoe Outfitters or Hazelbaker’s Bottom Yough Outfitters you can rent a canoe on a gentle section of the Yough and enjoy a day on tranquil waters. You can also enjoy a leisurely row on Laurel Hill State Park with Hazelbaker’s rental options. Think you can only canoe in Ohiopyle? Bask in the Grand Canyon of PA via canoe. Escape Philadelphia and go cruising down the Nockamixon. Enjoy the peace of canoeing all across PA!
