Rail to trail in the Laurel Highlands. (6 miles) This crushed limestone trail has a variety of sites along it's length. Of particular interest is the acid mine drainage remediation ponds just north of Indian Head. These ponds filter and settle the polutants from one of the mines found all through this valley. The trail seems to end at Indian Head but if you cross the street and go up the gravel road, there is another mile of trail to the south. The rail throughway extends a further 11 miles south to the Youghiogheny River and there are hopes to extend the trai to join with the Yough River Traill. Hikers and adventursoume mountain bikers could continue riding through much of this but it gets overgrown and a number of bridges are out.

Due to some recent storms the trail is washed out in spots but is very much passable. Reshes store or the Indian Head resturant are no longer there. take your water with you. Star market is still open at the other end along with a resturant

I used to live much closer to this trail and used it almost daily for a quick 12 miles on my mt. bike or a few miles jog. the terrain is unpaved, flat, and follows Indian Creek from Champion to the little market in Indian Head. its mostly tree covered which is great on hot summer days, but it does hold the humidity, which can make bugs from the trailing creek super annoying. Love this trail the most during cool autumn days.
