Westmoreland Heritage Trail
The trail is ideal for walking, jogging, bicycling, and cross-country skiing. The trail has a wide, flat handicapped accessible surface and will accommodate everyone regardless of age or physical ability (view the Regional Trail Corporation Mobility Device Policy).
Turtle Creek Extension of the WHT
There's lots happening with the WHT! We're adding more miles to the trail from Export to Murrysville and in the process of constructing 4 bridges along the extension of the trail.
Phase III Groundbreaking
On March 9, 2017, local municipalities, organizations, and supporters officially broke ground on Phase III of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail. The ceremony was held at Robert's Parcel in Murrysville, future home to a Visitors Center, trail head, and trail parking area. Construction of 5.9 miles is underway from Trafford to Murrysville. Check out some photos of the groundbreaking!
