Thank you Karen for all your dedication and hard work making these historical markers a reality. Today six were installed and eleven more will be installed in the near future. It’s WHT volunteers that make it happen and thanks to the grant received from The Pittsburgh Foundation ….


Murrysville to Export mile markers are officially installed! Members of the board and volunteers worked on Monday, September 23 to install mile posts, historical sign posts, benches, and tree plantings. What a day! Below are a few pictures from the day. Thank you to everyone who was involved!


Trail Trash team WHT
Dana Mastroianni (right rear) with son Levi and daughter Juliette and friend Ender Cosgrove (L) turned a walk on the Forbes Road – Saunders Station stretch of the WHT into a clean-up afternoon, collecting trailside trash as a community project for their local church.  We thank them for their work and community spirit and remind all trail users to keep a small bag handy when you use the trail and if you see trash along the way, pack it out to one of the trash barrels positioned at trailheads along the way.  The trail belongs to everyone. Help keep it green and clean!

Our mile markers are officially installed! Members of the board and volunteers worked through the heat on Tuesday, August 28 to install the posts. Below are a few pictures from the day. Thank you to everyone who was involved!


Phase IV of the trail is slowly but surely progressing! Here are some volunteers helping to finish the recently completed bridge located near Marlee Acres and just west of Haymaker Farm Road. It was completely 5/26/18.

These are pictures from 2013 and 2015 found on the blog coalandcoke.blogspot.com of the Murrysville to Trafford section of the trail before its completion into the new section of the Heritage Trail. See if you can find any of these before pictures’ locations on your next ride on the trail!
