Crouse Run


Pine Creek Land Conservation Trust


Remove and replace 80 foot bog bridge, rehabilitate degraded trails, and construct a new trail.

Work Completed

Landforce crews were able to construct 1,400 feet of new trail, rehabilitate and maintain another 2,000 feet of existing trail, complete the demolition of a rotted out bog bridge, and construct a new one in eight days time. This project also involved removing invasive weeds and downed trees as well as some tree pruning.


With the trail work provided by Landforce the nature reserve at Crouse Run now has a complete trail traversing the perimeter of the property and passing through the remaining foundation of the former Wildwood streetcar station along the Pittsburgh, Harmony, Butler, and New Castle Railway. The reconstruction of the bog bridge spans a wetland area which feeds into Crouse Run, a tributary of Pine Creek, and home to an abundance of wildflowers.
