1. The Youghiogheny River Marker
Inscription.  Stretched out below you is the Youghiogheny River and Reservoir. This swift and mighty river carves twisting canyons carpeted with lush evergreens. Its refreshing waters plunge over cascading waterfalls. Enticing the adventurous and luring the nature lover, the Youghiogheny's whitewater powers river rafters, energizes kayakers and draws anglers for thrilling recreation and rejuvenation. In contrast, its placid reservoir provides a sanctuary for boaters, fishermen and campers. The river shapes more than the landscape, it creates a natural playground for everyone to enjoy.
