Canoe Guides

Our guide Canoeing Guide to Western Pennsylvania is the comprehensive guide to western Pennsylvania; It covers the canoeable waters that run westward out of Pennsylvania via the Ohio River. The guide is the result of volunteer effort over the past 30 years by many, many canoeists, working through the Pittsburgh Council of American Youth Hostels. It is currently in its eighth edition, covering about 3000 miles of rivers in 470 pages. Order it from us or from

We like these guides to the nearby states:

The Appalachian Mountain Club's Quiet Water Canoe Guide for Pennsylvania, a guide to lakes and ponds, appears to be out of print -- but you might be able to find it in an outdoor store.

As always we have made a serious effort to present accurate descriptions.  However we are human, trails change with time, and we occasionally receive incorrect information.  Therefore we can not be responsible for discrepancies between these descriptions and actual trail conditions.   Use common sense, judgment and be careful out there.
