Bear Run, a Natural Area owned by the Western PA Conservancy
, is located across PA Route 381 from the famous Frank Lloyd Wright's "Fallingwater"
. Beautiful trails wind through laurel and rhododendron over creeks and small bridges. Some trails are steep and narrow but there are a couple of flatter trails for the less adventurous.
Just a little farther south on PA Route 381 is Ohiopyle State Park
. Better know for Whitewater and the Allegheny Highlands Bicycle Trail, there are crosscountry ski trails. However, both Bear Run and Ohiopyle are lower in elevation, so it takes a lot of snow to be able to ski this area. Ohiopyle Park Map (pdf)
