Region: Laurel Highlands
Historically, Confluence was named for its location at the junction of the Casselman River and Laurel Hill Creek with the Youghiogheny River. Today, the name is more than a geographic moniker, reflecting the confluence of recreational venues that attract visitors to the friendly community from far and wide. The Great Allegheny Passage also passes through Confluence, where biking and hiking abound and is part of a 335-mile continuous non-motorized corridor from near Pittsburgh to Washington, DC. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy this "trail town," offering lodging, dining and more for GAP enthusiasts.
