We love this trail. It goes on & on for miles. You can walk it or run it since it is mostly level unlike Pittsburgh. It is mostly tree-lined. There are houses along part of it which can make for some interesting viewing.

Wife and I have walked and rode with our sins for over 20 years. This is the best time of year to take a ride on the trail.

Born and raised in the south hills of Pittsburgh. The Montour Trail, Peters Trail and all of the trails in Pittsburgh are among the best things to happen to the region in my lifetime. I have ridden every trail and they are all mostly level, well maintained and very scenic. Two years ago my son and I rode from downtown... More

I love going to the montour trail. Very peaceful, will occasionally see deer right on the trail. The only problem is if it rains the trail may be muddy. It's great for walking the dog or going for a run. Also a lot of convenient places to park and access the trail.

Nice trail with plenty of parking along the way. Bring plenty of water as they don't have many places to find a fountain or shop nearby! Can be busy on certain weekdays but sometimes its peaceful after raining.

It is amazing to see the progress made over the last 5 years. Many thanks to the volunteers who build and maintain this great trail. The only area of concern for thru riders I... More

This just a great place to either bike or to walk along at anytime of the year. If I had to pick times of the year to really experience the trail it would be at the height of the fall season followed by the cool days of summer. The colors are just so wonderful to behold, besides kicking through the... More
