The Rotary Walk provides a pleasant stroll through southern Pennsylvania's Uniontown. From its western terminus off of Lebanon Avenue, the trail heads northeast for just over 1 mile along a former railroad right-of-way. For much of the route, it parallels the tree-lined Coal Lick Run, winding through a residential neighborhood interspersed with a few businesses.
At 0.7 miles, the trail crosses over W. Fayette Street at the George C. Marshall Plaza, named for a Uniontown native who became a five-star General of the Army and Secretary of State. He is perhaps best known as the developer of the Marshall Plan, an economic rejuvenation strategy for the aftermath of World War II, for which he was recognized with a Nobel Peace Prize in 1953. The plaza includes interpretive plaques and statues. After crossing W. Fayette Street, the trail continues for 0.4 miles and terminates at Pittsburgh Street. An historic Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) freight station (Grindle Station) can be seen on the other side of Pittsburgh Street about 100 feet from the end of the trail.
A mile southwest of the Rotary Walk, travelers will find another rail-trail: the Sheepskin Rail-Trail, which offers a couple more miles of pathway to enjoy, ending with a charming covered bridge.
