North Hills Harmony Trail Description

The Harmony Trail in the North Hills is a work in progress, managed by volunteers with the Rachel Carson Trails Conservancy. As of August 2011, about 1 mile of a proposed 4.3 miles of abandoned rail corridor have been completed. The conservancy is focusing its efforts on developing the corridor between Ingomar and Warrendale.

The rail line was originally an interurban trolley line that ran between Pittsburgh, Evans City, Butler and New Castle from 1908 to 1931. Today, the old track follows a wooded corridor parallel to Route 19.

Parking and Trail Access

From the Wexford Exit on US 79, travel east for just under 2 miles on Wexford Road (Rt 910). Parking is at the bottom of the hill at Wexford Run.
