Laurel Highlands

Routes: 711 and 381, Westmoreland and Fayette Counties

Home to some of the best biking and pedestrian trails in the nation, take your time along this byway. Pull the car over and get a closer look at Ohiopyle State Park, a treasure for those who love hiking and sparkling waterfalls. The most famous attraction along the Laurel Highlands byway is Fallingwater®, Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece on a waterfall. His Kentuck Knob is another nearby wonder.

Since there are plenty of other opportunities to journey by foot, bicycle, raft, or even railroad, plan a few nights along the Laurel Highlands Byway at a quaint B&B or one of the region’s famous resorts. A few other reasons to put on the brakes: The Laurel Caverns and Fort Ligonier.
