 Little Crabtree Creek Trail

The Little Crabtree Creek Trail is the first three miles of a 15-mile Old Forbes Road/Little Crabtree Creek greenway that connects Twin Lakes Park to Historic Hanna’s Town and the Loyalhanna Creek Greenway. The trail will follow the Alexandria Branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad.

Phase I of the Little Crabtree Creek Trail is now open!

Phase I begins in Twin Lakes Park and connects to the existing walking trails in the park; this 1.3-mile portion of the trail that will extend from the park to Luxor Road.

The trail has a 10-foot wide crushed limestone or asphalt surface for bicycling, walking, jogging, cross-country skiing, as well as 4-foot wide grassy shoulders for equestrian use. Phase I construction also includes a horse trailer parking lot with spaces for 8-10 trailers in the field off of White Church Road in Luxor. Construction of this phase of the trail was contracted by Murin & Murn of Glassport, PA.
