Browns Run Trail
Fayette County > County Parks and Trails
 The Browns Run Trail is a Rails-To-Trails Project that follows abandoned Monongahela and B & O Lines that pass through the heart of the coal and coke region in German Township.
 The Trail begins at the Monongahela River near Ronco - continues east through Leckrone, Highhouse - and continues on to Smithfield as the Ronco Spur of the Sheepskin Trail, a distance of approximately 12 miles.
The first two miles of this trail has been designed and 3/4 of a mile has been constructed beginning from the Lardin House and moving in a southwesterly direction toward the Monongahela River. 
German Township owns property to the Monongahela River.  Click Here For Brochure of
