Hazelbaker's Canoe Rentals
has been providing canoe, kayak and fishing trips on the Youghiogheny River for over 31 years. We are conveniently located in Layton, PA, less than 30 minutes south of Pittsburgh, near Linden Hall.

We specialize in canoe and kayak float trips along a Class 1 section of the Youghiogheny River -- perfect for beginners, families, and children. Two different float trips are available, ranging from 4 hours to a full day of paddling. Our river front pavilions are available for picnics and family gatherings. Our store is stocked with cold drinks, snacks and ice cream. We also stock live fishing bait. Get a Hazelbaker's T-shirt while you're here. They are absolutely the most trendy river wear available!

Looking up a lazy river
Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.
