The main reason for visiting this trail is the beautiful view across the Allegheny River to Downtown Pittsburgh. It's around 3 miles each way from the Casino to Washington's Landing or Millvale Riverfront Park (the two alternate trailheads)

It seems like every time we are in Pittsburgh, we end up going for a walk on the trail for some reason. If you stay in the Point Park/North Shore area, it's the easiest way to get around to the stadiums and restaurants. It's paved...More
