The Five Star Trail, located in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania, is a trail alongside an active railroad track[1] (Southwestern Pennsylvania Railroad) that stretches between Lynch Field, a Greensburg city park and Youngwood. At Hillis Street in Youngwood, the trail spurs off eastward to connect with the campus of Westmoreland County Community College and continue to Armbrust.

Managing partners[edit]

The trail is owned and managed by Westmoreland County Government; however, there is a "friends group",[2] and the municipalities along the trail and the Regional Trail Corporation assist in maintaining the trail. The "friends group" also hold a Poker Run annually along the trails.
