Trail Description

The Five Bridges Trail uses a portion of the former Pittsburgh and Shawmut Railroad corridor which ran from Brockway to Brookville. It starts out with several narrow cuts through shale hillsides near Brockway and then it traverses a wetlands area as it runs along Mill Creek and crosses it with five bridges. The trail begins about one mile outside of Brockway and runs for 8 miles to Allens Mills. Beavers have made dams along Mill Creek and today it is a scenic wetland area with many species of birds including grouse and herons. The trail is being improved and volunteers are welcome.
