    West Penn Trail

    Does anyone know if it is open yet the whole way -- from Saltsburg to Blairsville? The web site for the group that runs the area seems a little bit out of date.

    Thanks.

    I biked there yesterday. No. The bridge across the Conemaugh River near Westinghouse Rd is not open. It's under construction.

    You can find good a maps dated 2007 at
    http://www.conemaughvalleyconservanc.../trailmap.html
    Or do a find for "west penn trail" at http://www.indianacountyparks.org/pa...trailmaps.html
    The latter map is dated April 2008. Some of these web pages say the parking lot at Westinghouse Rd is closed. Maybe that was true at one point, but it wasn't true yesterday.

    After this picture

    was taken in April 2008, new concrete pillars were added to the tops of the old piers. As of yesterday, it looks like the next step is to add the horizontal beams.
