Grove Run Trail

The Grove Run Trail is located in the Linn Run State Park on the western side of Laurel Hill in the southeastern corner of Westmoreland County. The trail runs through land that was clear cut in the late 1800’s and was among the first land to be purchased by the state (in 1909) as a part of its Ohio River watershed reclamation efforts. The cool, wet ravine and the drier, surrounding ridges support diverse forest ecosystems dominated by hundred year old oaks, vigorous yellow poplars, and a rich array of red maples and yellow birches. Birds abound especially in the striped maples thickets along the ridge tops.
