Cedar Creek Park is the premiere access point to the Youghiogheny River Trail for Westmoreland County residents. This walking and biking trail is part of the Great Allegheny Passage, a regional trail system planned to link Washington D.C. with Pittsburgh. The trail passes directly through the Manderino Riverfront portion of the park. Picnic pavilions, athletic fields, and scenic play areas are just a few of the many reasons why Cedar Creek Park is always heavily visited. One of the more unique features within Cedar Creek Park's 464 acres is a spectacular deep gorge cut by Cedar Creek in the northern section of the park. A walk along the gorge trail provides a breathtaking view of the surrounding landscape.
