The Westmoreland County Section of the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP).

Amenities Along the Westmoreland County Section of the GAP

Many useful structures have been installed by either our volunteer maintenance crew or local Eagle Scouts. They provide rest stops or places to get out of a rainstorm and are in the form of covered picnic tables and memorial benches. Most are at or near the Pennsylvania and Lake Erie Railroad concrete mile markers. Those markers are within 0.25 miles of the GAP mile markers. 

Thanks to Jim Lockschmidt for the updates!

Thank you WYTC!

These signs have been installed on the GAP between mile markers 112 and 114.  Two consecutive miles have been precisely measured and these signs mark the beginning and end of each of the two miles. Just another amenity brought to you by the WYTC in collaboration with Linda Boxx, retired leader of the Allegheny Trail Alliance.
