The Sheepskin Trail is a lovely rural trail located in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. The Trail currently connects the town of Dunbar with the Youghiougheny River Trail section of the Great Allegheny Passage, just south of Connelsville.
The trail is well surfaced with crushed stone and meanders through mixed deciduous woods and shrubs. Remnants of the original "Sheepskin Line" and other rail-line crossings are apparent along the trail.
