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
