Indian Creek Valley Trail is a Pennsylvania rail-trail in northeast Fayette and southeast Westmoreland Counties about 50 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. The Saltlick Township-owned[1] Section (6 miles) opened in 1989, where the trail traverses Indian Creek along the former Indian Creek Valley Railroad (ICVRR). The second phase (1.5 miles) opened[2] in 2009, and is in Donegal Township; however, it is owned by the Mountain Watershed Association. Plans call to extend the trail further in the future.
