Regional Trails

The Hoodlebug Trail is a 10-mile long paved and unpaved pathway that spans between the towns of Indiana and Black Lick in Western Pennsylvania. The trail is a rail trail built along an abandoned railroad right-of-way and gets its name from the self-propelled passenger coach that ran along the railway lines in this area. The route goes through the beautiful countryside, over historic bridges, through thick forests and past several small communities. For much of the route, the trail parallels Route 119. The trail is used by the locals to commute between the towns.


The Hoodlebug Trail is open for non-motorized uses such as bike riding and walking. Portions of the trail are paved with asphalt and other portions have a surface of compacted crushed stone.


The Hoodlebug Trail goes past the following communities: Indiana, Lucerne Mines, Homer City, Graceton, Coral and Black Lick.
