Welcome to Youghiogheny Canoe Outfitters located in West Newton, PA right along the Great Allegheny Passage Bike Trail. We are a fun, family-owned business that offers bait and tackle along with canoe and kayak rentals at reasonable prices. We transport you in one of our vans to one of three destinations and you float down to your vehicle at our location in West Newton! We are located on a Class 1 portion of the Youghiogheny River which makes your day on the river perfect for all ages.
Bike and Boat trips available upon request. Bike up alongside the beautiful Youghiogheny River on the GAP Trail. We will then meet you at your destination with a canoe or kayak and you float back downstream, and we will bring your bikes back with us!
*We do not provide bicycles
WE WILL NOT BE PROVIDING BIKE AND BOAT TRIPS AT THIS TIME
We also sell fishing licenses! So if you have a passion for the outdoors, you want to come to see us and fish the Yough! Our Stock the Yough program will be in full swing from March-April for the start of trout season!
