Indian Creek Valley Trail
Organization: Mountain Watershed Association
Status: Grant awarded
Type: Bike path/trail
Address: Indian Creek Valley Trail, PA
The Mountain Watershed Association is a grassroots group transforming abandoned railroad beds in western Pennsylvania into scenic trails that attract visitors and provide recreation and transportation options for residents as well. This $10,000 grant will leverage other funding to complete an additional seven-mile section of trail, filling a gap in the planned 22-mile facility. Economic development from increased tourism is one project goal in this rural part of the Laurel Highlands region where destinations including Ohiopyle State Park and the Great Allegheny Passage draw millions of visitors annually.
