The Five Star Trail

A Critical Link

The Five Star Trail Association (affiliated with the Regional Trail Corporation), is completing a 7.5 mile trail beginning at Lynch Field at Greensburg through South Greensburg, Youngwood and New Stanton. An unusual opprotunity exists for the Trail developers, as the trail will parallel the County owned railway trackage which the "Highlander" Steam Passenger Train operates on, permitting Rail/Trail interaction between hikers/bikers and passengers.

1997 construction has started, central portions in Greensburg and South Greensburg are really moving ahead, with expected completion in mid-summer, and in 1998 linkage between Lynch Field and Westmoreland Community College. The trail will be an alternate transportation route, allowing students to bike to classes from Greensburg - only a 1/2 hour ride!

The name 5 Star is derived from the communities of Greensburg, South Greensburg, Southwest Greensburg, Hempfield Township and Youngwood. Also in need of volunteers, call 724-830-3959.
