The Vestal Trail is 0.5-mile connection through town of McCandless that joins the Oakridge neighborhood to the playing fields at its eastern end. The trail is maintained by volunteers of the Rachel Carson Trails Conservancy and is part of the Harmony Trail corridor.
The southern entrance into the trailhead parking lot is at the intersection of Pine Creek Road & Bellcrest Road in Wexford, PA. There is a nicely built wooden bridge that heads eastward from the trailhead and traverses over Pine Creek. At the east end of the wooden bridge, one needs to make two sharp left turns (almost a U-turn) to continue on the Vestal trail, otherwise, one will terminate at the ball fields. The trail weaves along Pine Creek crossing over several short bridges heading in a north westward direction and terminates onto Oakridge Drive. The trail surface is comprised of a mix of grass, crushed limestone and small asphalt/ cinder- like material.
Despite being a very short trail, the mix of wild flowers, tree saplings and other flora along the trail and the creek make it a picturesque location.
Park at Vestal Park, which is located on Pine Creek Road across from Bellcrest Road.
