Directions: It parallels the west side
of the Youghiogheny River and connects many small towns
and rural open spaces along the entire river valley.
For access at Cedar Creek County Park, take Route 51
South through Elizabeth, past the exit for Route 136.
You will see a sign for Cedar Creek Park several miles
later. Turn left off of Route 51. Follow signs into
the park and down the hill to the trail and parking
lot along the river.
You can also take the turnpike to the New Stanton Exit,

and take the first exit after the river crossing. This
gets you onto Rt.51 heading north. About 1/4 mile north
