Celebrate West Creek Rails to Trails

Celebrate West Creek Rails to Trails

The first phase of the West Creek Rails to Trails is complete.  The nearly 6 mile section stretches from the caboose at the eastern end of Emporium to the intersection of Moore Hill Road 

In conjunction of the Sinnemahone Ultra Marathon a ribbon cutting will take place Saturday October 18 at 3pm.  “Everyone is welcome to participate, wear your walking/running shoes, hop on a bike or ride your wheelchair on the newly finished surface,” says Cameron County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tina Johns Solak.

The red ribbon will be cut at the intersection of the trail and South Broad Street.  This area is the hub for the Sinnemahone 50k.  Legacy and Down County Country Boys will perform 11am-6pm.  Food and fall flea market vendors will line the Broad and Fourth Street areas. 

The West Creek Rails to Trails project has been ongoing since the rails were taken out out by the Allegheny & Eastern Railroad, a division of the Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad Company. 

Johns Solak says the trail is receiving heavy use.  “The credit for this project belongs to those that had the vision, the West Creek Rails to Trails Association, the St Marys Snowmobile Association and the contractors including Jeff Ream and Solveson Contracting.”


 The chamber is working with downtown Emporium businesses on unique opportunities for expansion due to the expected year round use of the trail.  Many of the businesses have purchased directional signs so travelers can find their establishments.  Those signs will be installed in the next few weeks.
