The first 0.5 mile of the Ligonier Valley Trail and Bikeway is now complete, linking the town's popular attractions: Fort Ligonier from the days of George Washington and the French and Indian War, the historic Compass Inn for stagecoach travelers, the new Ligonier Valley Railroad Museum and the Southern Alleghenies Art Museum. In Ligonier Borough the trail offers a safe route for pedestrians and cyclists to access restaurants and shops in the beautiful town. Farther afield the trail leads bikers and hikers into the countryside of Ligonier Township.
The trail follows what was once the Lincoln Highway, built for early motorists, and extends to a nature trail at the Ligonier Township Municipal Center. Part of the trail is complete and the rest of the route will be finished according to an approved master plan. When finished, the Ligonier Valley Trail and Bikeway will be one of the top trail attractions in the Laurel Highlands and will eventually extend to Idlewild Park, west of Ligonier.
