Nestled along the edge of the Allegheny National Forest, Ridgway is a historic small town with an impressive past. From the beautiful downtown streets to the immaculate lumber mansions, our town will welcome you with a warm, friendly atmosphere.
The Allegheny National Forest provides an outdoor paradise in warmer months, full of canoeing on the Clarion River, walking, biking and hiking the Clarion River-Little Toby Rail Trail and festivals each month that capture our artistic, fun loving spirit. In the winter, enjoy cross county skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling and the Chainsaw Carving Rendezvous.
Year round, visit us for the elk viewing- just 20 minutes away, the Main Street shopping or just to get away from it all! Whatever the reason for your visit, stop in the Ridgway-Elk County Chamber of Commerce and Welcome Center, 300 Main Street, Ridgway!
