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
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account.
