TRHT - Station Square Trail is a 1.3 mile point-to-point trail located near Pittsburgh, PA and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, road biking, and mountain biking and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Heavily trafficked "trail" on the Monongahela's south shore. (1 mile) The Station Square section of the Three Rivers heritage Trail is by far the least suitable for bicycles in the whoe system so far. It takes you right through Bessimer Court at Station Square and if the weather is nice it will be literally packed with pedestrians. Even a jogger would have problems navigating the people loitering, enjoying the view or waiting for a table at any of the many restaurants. The only things to recommend this piece of trail are the artifacts left over from the steel mills that used to dominate Pittsburgh, a nice view of the city at the western terminus of this trail and the hope that one day it will truly connect to the other trails. This is literally Mile Zero of the Great Allegheny Passage. Take the Smithfield Street Bridge to connect to the Eliza Furnace Trail or ride the 4 or 5 blocks on back streets to get to the 9th St. terminus of the South Side Trail.
