The walking trail system is a good way to get some excercise and see a few of the city landmarks. It will take you on miles of riverfront and from the Hot Metal Bridge to the Heinz Lofts you will see Southside, Station Square, PNC Park, Heinz Field Point Park and many more sights. A good way to spend an... More

We often go to Pittsburgh to visit our son. We are always looking for something new to do. I am currently training for a three day 60 mile walk later this month. I considered opting out on my visit with my son this time around since I needed to train. Then I heard about the beautiful and interesting trail systems... More

first time riding in Pittsburgh, and so afar impressed, the 3 rivers heritage trail is a mostly paved trail with easy access and wide paths to accommodate runners walkers and cyclist even with pull behind carts. The Path is relatively flat smooth and only has significant elevations at bridge crossings which so far have been very simple to navigate. The... More

It was Sunday afternoon and we felt like doing something fun so we loaded up the bikes and decided to go for a ride that we had never done before. We unloaded the bikes at Mitchells in the Homestead Waterfront and rode towards Pittsburgh. The trail is very nice and not too busy. We saw the water slides, the eaglets... More

Stayed overnight in downtown Pittsburg and rode the trail for over 20 miles. It runs along the rivers on both sides with easy accesses to each side on the bridges. The trail is wide, paved and flat. Several areas to shop, eat, rest and use the facilities. Pittsburg did a great job with their waterfront. A must for anyone!

Had lots of fun exploring Strip District before bike ride. Trails follow the rivers and cross over several bridges. Point Park was a great experience, where Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio Rivers meet. Signage not the best, got off the trail a couple of times, but not too hard to get back on track.

Pittsburgh has done a good job building and maintaining these river trails all over the city. They've added a new part to the south side trails, and there are a lot of hotels and restaurants close by.

Excellent view and wonderful place to spend time. Sit relax enjoy the view and walk around to get cool breeze. Huge fountain is another reason to go there.

All I remember that it is very quiet park it has many trails that are beutiful. I liked going in the fall when the leaves fall and you also might want to visit in the summer because it was unforgetable.

We came to Pittsburgh specifically to bike some of their trails. I was really looking forward to enjoying this trail in the heart of the city, but it was not to be. First off, I encountered several sections of the south trail that were in poor shape. Trying to bike over broken concrete is no fun. It's also very noisy.... More
