Sheepskin Trail

Sheepskin Trail Shot

The Sheepskin Trail is a developing trail connection crossing through rural Fayette County, PA, that will connect 34 miles of trail to link Dunbar Township to Point Marion Borough, and on to West Virginia.

The Sheepskin Trail will pass through several former coal and coke “patch towns,” and connect the Great Allegheny Passage to a growing network of trails surrounding the greater Morgantown, West Virginia area. Small sections of trail are on the ground and being built. The first 2.1-mile section creates a spur from the Great Allegheny Passage near Connellsville to Dunbar Borough.


Explore Sheepskin’s Trail Towns:

Dunbar, PA

Dunbar celebrates its industrial heritage right along the Dunbar Creek at Coke Oven Park. A full scale coke oven has been recreated in the center of town across from the Dunbar Historical Society. This once industrial hub town is looking at ways to continue to connect the trail and attract businesses in its compact business district. Check out this Trail Town’s Business Opportunities.


Point Marion, PA

Located along the Monongahela River near the Pennsylvania state line, Point Marion has become a bedroom community for the nearby university city of Morgantown, West Virginia. The developing trail will meet up with the community park where events are held throughout the summer. Several new public art displays reflect the heritage and trail friendliness as visitors enter the town. Friendship Hill, a National Historic Site, can be found just outside of town.
