About this Wine Trail

Tips for Visiting

Tucked away along the Southwest Passage trail is ‘Fallingwater‘, a National Historic Landmark and architectural gem designed by America’s most famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. The only Wright-designed home open to the public, Fallingwater appears to float on top of the 30-foot waterfall upon which it is built. After exploring this trail, stay the night at one of the Laurel Highland’s acclaimed resorts and enjoy golf, skiing, wildlife centers, spa services, shopping and fine dining.
