Westmoreland Land Trust scenic drive traces part of 18th century Forbes Road

Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve in Unity and Saint Vincent College, seen in the background, are among points of interest along a scenic driving route developed by the Westmoreland Land Trust that follows parts of the 18th century Forbes Road in Westmoreland County.

Motorists who take a drive along the Westmoreland Land Trust’s newest road ramble may get a sense of the hilly terrain Gen. John Forbes’ British soldiers had to cross on foot in the mid-18th century, when they seized the site of present-day Pittsburgh from their French foes.
