DescriptionWhether this is your first whitewater rafting trip or you're an experienced rafter, the Lower Yough (pronounced “Yok”), in the heart of The Laurel Highlands, is a blast!! And what could be a better way to spend a hot summer day then on the river? The Lower Yough is Class III whitewater which means it is fun. It's perfect for those who haven't had prior whitewater experience or for those who have.
