Description

Many hikers, bikers, and walkers will know the Woodlands Heritage Trail well, thanks to its connection to the major trail of West Penn Trail in Pennsylvania.

The trail begins on a nice smooth surface, made of concrete as it connects to the nearby bridge that passes over the Conemaugh River. It won't be long until you pass through a small urban neighborhood and onto another bridge that crosses the Loyalhanna Creek. After this, you'll start your journey through thick Pennsylvania forests.
