The “Let’s Roll” Flight 93 Memorial Route
Nested at the foot of Laurel Mountain lies Mt. Pleasant, Pennsylvania. Just 35 minutes from Pittsburgh, this quaint little town makes a great first stop. Park in the town center…It’s a great place to catch some shade and stretch your legs. Heading East, it’s all uphill as you climb towards the summit. Take the time to visit Ohio Pyle State Park where the road follows the Youghiogheny River. In the summer, you can sit by the river and watch the kayakers tackle the one of the numerous rapids and waterfalls. Turning North, you will follow scenic Route 711 until it connects to the Lincoln Highway in Ligonier. Another climb takes you to the summit where the Flight 93 heroes are memorialized.
