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

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!
