As a native Pittsburgher, this is one of our family's favorite things to do. We always start the trail from Washington's landing (Herr's Island) and ride towards the Point. Parking on the island is free and usually available. The trail is on the north side of the river (across from the city). The ride is about 2.5 miles long and... More

Poor information on where to access this trail. Address listed here only brings you to the start of Allegheny River Blvd. Could not enjoy the trail.

This trail seems to be still in the making and from what I can see it's just a bike path and not very established

Walked from the Strip District to the Point, under no fewer than 5 bridges along the Allegheny River. About 10 years ago I kayaked on the Allegheny in this area and found it to be an interesting and different perspective of Pittsburgh, this trail gives that perspective without having to get in the water. In so many spots you can... More

In town for Reds/Pirates series, and had a nice quiet early morning walk here each morning. River is beautiful!

Took this trail on our way back from Point State Park. It is a very pleasant walk and there are staircases along the way to get up to street level. Nice walk along the river and not on the upper level with the streets, cars, and buildings. Great view across the river.

Great trails system along the waterfront ... Walk or rent a bike and go explore! Much to see and do along the way depending on the section you choose to explore. Also many great spots to grab a seat at a bench and enjoy the sunshine and scenery around you :)

Although this trail is much longer than we explored, our first time on the trail was a good introduction. The trail runs along Pittsburgh's Monongahela, Allegheny, and Ohio Rivers, and it's about 25 miles long. We noticed a number of bike rental stations, but we decided to walk. After exploring the strip district, we walked across the David McCullough Bridge... More

This rail-trail runs along Pittsburgh's Monongahela, Allegheny, and Ohio Rivers. It's about 25 miles long, connects to and is a part of many other trail systems, including The Great Allegheny Passage. This is one of the best ways to see the city by bike.

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
