U.S. 30 to PA Route 271
The Laurel Highlands Trail follows a gentle path high above the isolated valley of Mill Creek. The views here to the northwest of the trail are especially nice during the winter months. During the summer blooming mountain laurel is a constant companion. Close to Route 271 the trail passes through a series of rock formations worthy of exploration. Note that the Route 271 shelter is about 0.7 miles off the trail near the parking area.
