Indian Creek Valley Trail is a rail-trail in northeast Fayette and southeast Westmoreland Counties about 50 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. The Saltlick Township-owned Section (6 miles) opened in 1989, where the trail traverses Indian Creek along the former Indian Creek Valley Railroad (ICVRR). The second phase (1.5 miles) opened in 2009, and is in Donegal Township, however it is owned by the Mountain Watershed Association. Plans call to extend the trail further in the future.
