Settler's Cabin Park serves a growing population in the western section of the county. The connector trail will link Settler's Cabin Park to the Panhandle Trail, a 29-mile trail that stretches from Carnegie to Weirton, WV. The Panhandle Trail also connects to the Montour Trail. The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources provided a grant of $250,000 and Allegheny County provided a $250,000 match to make this project possible. Construction began fall 2014 and was completed in summer 2015. This section of trail located within the park property has a steep grade inherit with the natural terrain and provides great exercise!
