We took a hike leaving from the Homestead to go hike the Cascades Gorge with Brian (through Allegheny Outfitters). The hike takes you past 12 amazing waterfalls. The hike itself was absolutely made by Brian. He was hysterical and informative all at the same time....More

My golf outing at the Lower Cascades could not have been better. The course in in superb condition and the greens are all manicured beautifully. It was a good golf skills test, yet allowed this not so long senior player a fair opportunity. The beauty...More

This course is permanently closed. We drove by and they were making hay in the fairways. Looked like a nice course from what we could see.
