Bear Run beneath Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater

Bear Run is a 5.0-mile-long (8.0 km)[1] tributary of the Youghiogheny River in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, in the United States.

Bear Run is in the Appalachian Mountains and part of the Pittsburgh metropolitan area. The Fallingwater house, designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright, is located on this stream at the locality known as Mill Run.

Bear Run is inside the Bear Run Nature Reserve, protected by the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy. Bear Run is a designated Pennsylvania Scenic River. The nearest incorporated town is Ohiopyle, once a resort town for affluent Pittsburghers, and now a launch point for whitewater rafting.
