Confluence : Overview

Mile 60 on the Great Allegheny Passage

Named for the confluence of the Casselman and Youghiogheny Rivers and Laurel Hill Creek, Confluence's town motto is “Where mountains touch rivers.” It's a fitting description, as the town is surrounded by some of the highest mountains in Pennsylvania. Bordered to the south by Youghiogheny River Lake and to the north by Ohiopyle State Park, Confluence’s natural surroundings make for an especially pleasant experience.

And if any town knows that “trails mean business” it’s Confluence. The first section of the Great Allegheny Passage was completed in 1986 just outside of Confluence. The town has been catering to cyclists for nearly 25 years.

Bikers who cross over the Youghiogheny River will find shaded streets and the landmark River’s Edge Café. They cross a second pedestrian bridge over the Casselman River and discover a classic mid-mountain town complete with a town square and Victorian bandstand, library, bike shop, grocery store and hometown cafe. An annual Pumpkin Fest and a summer concert series add to the town’s charm.
