Connellsville’s lodging needs were tempered in 2010 with the addition of a B&B and guesthouse. Town is just 16 miles from Fallingwater, so bring on more lodging and dining!

Connellsville : Overview 

Mile 88 on the Great Allegheny Passage

The City of Connellsville was once covered with the famous coke ovens along the hillsides next to Youghiogheny River.  Some coke ovens still survive along the Great Allegheny Passage where many bicyclists and hikers explore this Trail Town full of history and heritage.  The GAP Trail goes through the popular Yough River Park that was recently renovated with new playground equipment, wi-fi, and other trailside conveniences. 

Continue along the trail along the community gardens full of flowers and plantlife as you enter this Trail Town.  Explore the three Connellsville bike loops that will take your through quaint neighborhoods, the business district, and to the Amtrak station. Spend the night in a local bed and breakfast or opt for some nearby campsites, and stop for lunch or dinner in some popular local favorites in Connellsville.

       

Connellsville is also developing as a popular art spot along the GAP trail.  Three public art pieces are located next to and even over the trail!  Make sure to check out the Connellsville Stained Glass Arch (northern trailhead), From Coke to Spokes (Yough Park/3rd Street), and Four Seasons (silos at southern trailhead). Additional murals can be found in the heart of downtown.
