I run on some part of this trial system a minimum of three days per week, so I can say with authority that it is one of the best center city trail system around. It is easy to access from many locations. It is lighted, clean and relatively safe for a major urban area. If you have more time and... More

We did this twice this summer. Once we rented bicycles from Golden Triangle (they're great, very nice, good value for your money, bikes are in great shape, you get a flat tire kit or they come and change it for you, also the perfect location to park your car and start riding your bike) and the other time we just...

The Trail is absolutely breathtaking for bikers, walkers, and joggers talk a walk across the Hot Metal Bridge to the South Side and enjoy dining, window shopping or just site seeing google "Hot Iron Metal Bridge" and learn the history of the trains that use to transport hot metal in train tankers across that bridge.

We really enjoyed our walks along the beautiful Three Rivers Heritage Trail while in Pittsburgh. My favorite photographs of this great city are the ones taken from this trail. It offers you a different and amazing perspective on the many bridges, skyscrapers, rivers, etc. Even though the trail meanders through various districts, offering access to many museums, attractions, etc., it...

We rode our bikes on the trails on both sides of the river from Homestead to Downtown to the Casino. There was only one section not connected - from the Point to the Legacy bridge on the south city side. You have to use a sidewalk here, but it is well marked. It is amazing how the city rebirthed the... More

We walked from the 6th St bridge (PNC Park) east to just beyond the Rivers Casino. It was a pleasant walk, with good views of the river and city. Another characteristic was that the location was quiet. Pittsburgh is a noisy city. The density of Interstate highways winding in and out is high. And once walking on Penn Ave a... More

We walked the trail from our hotel to the bridge to head to the game at PNC. Very relaxing and it was a unique way to see the river. Enjoyed seeing the boats and the people in their Kayaks.

Besides an influx of bridges, Pittsburgh’s rivers provide great scenery for the many trails that now line them. The Heritage Trail is a great example. Perfect for a walk, run, or bike ride. Enjoy a scenic view of the Allegheny river, and the bridges that span it. Worth checking out!

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
