I have to disagree with the users who said this trail was well marked. The last nice day of the year we decided to try and hike this trail, but it was VERY poorly marked. I don't know why, but the yellow markings used to denote the rachel carson trail ended up taking us out of the park, and onto main roads in the neighborhood. Once we realized this was likely wrong, we were 2 miles out of the park. Last nice day of the year was a waste.

One of my favorite spots to hike in Allegheny county. Well maintained and marked, scenic views of the Allegheny River will please the eyes, and a couple of hills challenge the legs.
