TRAIL RESURFACING BEGINS JANUARY 14, 2019
The Collier section of the Panhandle Trail will begin resurfacing Monday, January 14, 2019, extending from the trailhead in Walker’s Mill to the Gregg Station entrance. Resurfacing will be expected to last a week, weather depending.
The trail in sections of those four miles will be inaccessible or unusable during resurfacing, and equipment will be parked on the sides the trail. During resurfacing it will be best to avoid that section of the trail and enter at Gregg Station.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but this will renew the trail surface AND repair and mitigate the damage from stormwater.
Join us again when it’s done!
Please note: parking at all trail entrances is in gravel lots.
Overflow parking for Night Walk and Rock the Quarry only:
Public Works Yard. 110 Noblestown Road, Carnegie PA 15106.

Girl Scout Gold Award Project by Ashley Altieri
For a Gold Award project, Girl Scout Ashley Altieri placed 20 different plant podiums throughout Panhandle trail. Each post/podium displays a picture of a plant/wildflower that can be found on the trail, along with a passage of information that describes interesting facts, stories, or characteristics about it.
If you are unable to locate all of the podiums, or you would like to see where they are, click the link below for a digital map of the trail that displays the general vicinity of each podium. There is also a link for a list of GPS coordinates if a person would like to hike with their GPS and find each of the posts in that manner.
The posts can be found from the beginning of Panhandle Trail (by Walkers Mill Road) and end by Sunnyside Road.
