5 stars as an easy and safe way to bike/walk commute downtown. But I wouldn't recommend coming here specifically to see the trail. Paved, not very interesting.

We went today and have a few suggestions. Great place to bike, flat running, walking. It's not hiking all paths are concrete.

I guess if you are stuck living in the city then this is a good place to exercise. It's all paved and easy to bike, run or walk. Roller bladed it years ago. I found it to be a highly stressful place though. A good portion of it runs right along rt 376 or Baum Blvd (or something? I don't know the names of all those roads near the city) It was interesting to end up at the Allegheny County Jail on 1st or 2nd ave. We actually saw some faces looking out at us from the tiny windows -- we waved...
