Westmoreland Heritage Trail


Approximately nine miles of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail are completed and open from Saltsburg to Delmont. Construction of Phase III, 5.9 miles from BY Park in Trafford to Duff Park in Murrysville, began in early March and is slated to be completed in August 2017. The trail chapter’s long term goal is acquire and construct a twenty mile hiking and bicycling trail from Saltsburg to Trafford. 

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).
