Trail Description

The Sheepskin Trail officially opened in May 2008. It connects to the Youghiogheny River Trail at Wheeler Bottom near Connellsville and enters Dunbar Borough next to the Dunbar Historical Society. There is a comfort station on Railroad Street and trail parking one block from the Historical Society and exercise equipment across the trail from the comfort station. This part of the Sheepskin Trail is the first leg of the 32-mile long trail which will continue through the center of Fayette County to Point Marion. It will connect to the West Virginia Rail-Trail System at the state line. Riding the Sheepskin Trail will give visitors the opportunity to visit the Dunbar Historical Society's Education Center on Saturdays and see the newly built beehive coke oven at the DHS Park across the street from the trail entrance. Visitors can also take a ride to Dunbar on the Fayette Central RR “Sheepskin Line” on Saturdays. The train takes visitors between Uniontown and onto the bridge over the Youghiogheny River at Connellsville. On Sundays, the FCRR runs between Uniontown and Fairchance.
