The three miles of Meadow Run Trail in Ohiopyle State Park, PA passes along some of the park's best scenery. A constant along the trail are eastern hemlock, rhododendron, and mountain laurel. Meadow Run Trail has several access points including a parking area near Dinnerbell Road (SR 2011). From this access point the trail splits off into multiple segments with the right cutting by an impressive outcropping of blue limestone made up of cliffs and overhangs several stories high before the trail joins up at Meadow Run near the scenic Meadow Run Cascades. From this point forward the trail meanders along scenic Meadow Run passing Flat Rock before veering above the run until it joins again near the Meadow Run Natural Waterslide, which has a parking lot off of Route 381. The trail continues under a bridge before emerging at the Youghiogheny River in a location that sports enormous rocks and rock ledges. Following the shoreline the trail cuts through some rough terrain that rises above the Youghiogheny River before heading down in elevation at the end of Meadow Run Trail where Cucumber Run joins the Youghiogheny River less than one hundred yards from Cucumber Falls.
