Trail gets funding
Westmoreland County has received a $177,000 grant from the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to develop the Little Crabtree Creek Trail, a 1.2-mile recreational trail to connect the intersection of the Bovard-Luxor Road to Twin Lakes Park, which straddles Hempfield and Unity townships.
The grant will help to pay for trail construction, making it accessible to the physically handicapped, landscaping, signs and other site improvements.
