Awesome trail to run on very scenic . Single lane gravel track for a large portion of the trail for runners worried about the pavement . Easy to get extra miles across the bridge bc the trail is kinda short .

Crowded from the point up to Hot Metal Bridge then smooth sailing. Cool stuff if you like the industrial side and Pittsburgh history. Steel mill, freight trains, barges,Pinkerton strike, Kennywood coaster valley... what’s not to like! Paved surface bumpy at times but generally smooth.

Locals calls this the "Jail Trail" cause you can see county jail along the way. This isn't a very exciting hiking spot as it's basically a paved road for walking and biking. But considering it's in such an urban location, it's a really nice spot to get outside and get some exercise. There are some nice views of the Monongahela River and the city. There's always a lot of people on the trail so it feels pretty safe too.

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...
