The Little Crabtree Creek Trail in Latrobe, Pennsylvania is an easy 2.6 mile out-and-back hike that leads from Twin Lakes Park Parking Lot F over to Luxor Rd.

This trail follows the path of the former Alexandria Branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad, which stopped operating around 1960. This trail is still a work-in-progress and currently ends at Luxor Rd, which is part of Phase I. Phase II plans to bring the trail to Crabtree and will extend to 2.7 miles one-way (5.4 miles out-and-back).

The trail itself sits between private property, so stay on the trail at all times. From the trailhead at Twin Lakes Park, you'll hike behind backyards with no sight of Little Crabtree Creek for quite some time. The trail finally runs parallel to Little Crabtree Creek between Rifle Rd and Luxor Rd.

Fall foliage: This trail can be a nice walk on a cold Fall day if you want to see some yellow and orange foliage.

Volunteers: The Regional Trail Corporation (RTC) is looking for volunteers. To help with trail maintenance, exploring new options, and assisting with fundraising contact the RTC or the Westmoreland County Bureau of Parks and Recreation: (724)-830-350

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
