Trail Guide to the Youghiogheny Gorge
Developed by award-winning nature writer, essayist and columnist Ben Moyer, the guide considers natural features apparent at each mile-marker between Ohiopyle and Confluence (miles 62-71). The text goes beyond mere identification to reveal subtle processes that influenced the landscape in the past, and will continue to shape the gorge and the life within it. Users who pause to reflect on the succinct but insightful text will leave the Youghiogheny Gorge with a new appreciation for a segment of the GAP both geologically unique and biologically diverse. Color photographs help users recognize common gorge plants and discern ecological themes and patterns.
