    Youghiogheny (Yough) Trail

    by travelfrosch Written Sep 28, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Passing through Confluence is the Youghiogheny River Rail Trail, more commonly known as "The Yough." The river is pronounced, "Yock-i-GAIN-y," while the nickname is actually pronounced "Yock." While the strange pronunciation will undoubtedly throw foreigners off, the views on the trail are quite impressive.

    The trail itself is wide and flat, suitable for both walkers and bikers. At certain bends of the river, you can scramble down to the water's edge for a more up-close view of the river and its surroundings. Certainly rural Pennsylvania at its most scenic.

    River's Edge Cafe: Lunch on the Porch

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My In-Laws took us to this fine spot in confluence. If the weather is nice, you can sit at tables on the porch and ponder the river view. Food was very well-prepared and tasty, and the service was friendly. If you haven't made reservations, you're free to wander in the front yard, lounge on benches, and even make your way down the slope to the river bank if you like.

    Favorite Dish: We were there for lunch. Burgers and sandwiches were the order of the day, and got rave reviews. For me, I got the soup of the day (which was chicken enchilada soup as I recall), which was excellent. the real treat, though, was the dessert. A tantalizing plate of cakes and pies are brought out for you to choose from. I had something called the "Tiramisu Cheese Cake." It was as decadent as it sounded.

    A variety of beer is on tap, and the restaurant prides itself on its various mixed drinks. This time, though, I satisfied myself with a Stewart's Root Beer.
