Nestled along the Clarion River at the edge of the Allegheny National Forest is historic Ridgway, a quaint and friendly town with an illustrious past. Once the home of Gilded Age lumber barons, Ridgway boasts stunning Victorian architecture, a bustling downtown of shops and restaurants, and that warm and welcoming atmosphere you can only find in Northwestern Pennsylvania!
Centrally located in the lush forests of the Pennsylvania Wilds, Ridgway is an outdoor lover’s paradise! The perfect base to explore The Allegheny National Forest, kayak the Clarion River or hike the Little Toby Rail Trail; Ridgway offers unlimited opportunities for walking, biking, fly fishing, and hiking spring through fall. In the winter, you can enjoy cross-country skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, or participate in one of our monthly festivals including the internationally acclaimed Chainsaw Carvers’ Rendezvous.
