For people living in the Eastern United States, Pennsylvania whitewater rafting trips are available on the Yoghiogheny River and the Cheat River. These rivers are an easy drive from many of the larger metropolitan areas of the Eastern seaboard. Driving time from Washington DC is only 3.5 hours.
Youghiogheny River Rafting Trips (Class III-IV):
Every summer, more than 100,000 people enjoy the spectacular scenery, and exciting Class III and IV rapids of the Youghiogheny. Controlled water releases by the Army Corps of Engineers generally means reliable flows throughout the summer.
Cheat River Rafting Trips (Class IV-V):
Cheat River rafting stretches thirteen miles from Albright to the Jenkinsburg Bridge in West Virginia. The river offers solid Class IV whitewater rafting at medium water levels and Class V at higher flows. The Cheat gains its flows from snow melt, so it generally flows from April until June.
