Westmoreland Heritage Trail


Ride or walk through history along the Westmoreland Heritage Trail! Approximately nine miles of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail are completed and open from Saltsburg to Delmont. An additional 5.9 miles from Duff Park in Murrysville to B-Y Park in Trafford are open and ready to use. The trail chapter’s long term goal is acquire and construct a twenty-two mile hiking and bicycling trail from Saltsburg to Trafford.

The new Westmoreland Heritage Trail section from Murrysville to Export is NOT OPEN! Construction is underway and that part of the trail is not safe to use. If you are using that part of the trail, you are holding up construction progress and could further delay the opening date. Please obey all signage and be safe!

Also, if you are using the WHT from Murrysville to Trafford, please park in designated trail parking areas (Roberts Trail Access/Duff Park in Murrysville, Saunders Station Area in Monroeville, and BY Park in Trafford). DO NOT PARK in parking lots owned by private businesses!

We know everyone is excited to use the new trail, but please do not use the section from Murrysville to Export – it is still under construction! If you have any questions, please contact Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation at 724-830-3950. Thank you for your cooperation!

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).

The Westmoreland Heritage Trail Chapter has it's own official website, dedicated to trail news, updates, events, and more!

On Sunday, October 21, 2018, the Westmoreland Heritage Trail Chapter, along with the Murrysville Garden Club and the Murrysville American Legion Post #711, was awarded the Blue Star Memorial Marker that was placed at the Roberts Trail Access Area in Murrysville. The Blue Star Memorial is a living tribute to the men and women who have served, are now serving, and will serve in the Armed Forces of this great Nation.
