Sheepskin Trail

The Sheepskin is a rail-trail project that will cut through the heart of central Fayette County. It is a missing link to a nationally significant trail system. Upon its completion it will link with the Great Allegheny Passage (a Pittsburgh-to-Washington DC Rail-trail network), the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail, and the West Virginia Rail-Trail System. As a recreational greenway, the Sheepskin will link the Youghiogheny, Monongahela, and Cheat River watersheds - making it a significant greenway.
