Crushed limestone rail-trail. This section of the Montour Trail is Mile Zero for what will ultimately extend 47 miles Southeast to Clairton. From Montour Road it travels South past the Forest Grove shooting ranges and the Santucci Conservation Area. The profile makes it look more difficult than it really is as, like most rail-trails, it is fairly flat. The trail runs right along side Mountour Run and crosses it three times on bridges. When it's been raining, the run will be muddy, high and fast. The surcace is crushed limestone and in only a few places has the fine surface been eroded away to reveal some of the larger grains below. However, there is no roughness of any significance.

Lots of people not paying attention to social distancing. Love this trail. A little too over crowded with concerns of the virus. Nice light grade so the ride back is really easy, so it’s nice to push yourself to go out further on this long line of trails.

This was the annual Tour the Montour ride, 62 mile option with turnaround at MP31. A gorgeous day to ride, not too cool early, not too hot later. Trail was a little rough, mostly from sand deposited on the path from rains, some erosion rills in limited areas, two construction detours, one of which it was neccesary to dismount & walk.

Nice trail. Paved, crushed limestone, urban and rural, hilly and flat, it seems to change character every 5 miles. If you are riding, get there early. Foot traffic is heavy Corapolis to the tunnel. Past the tunnel, traffic drops significantly for the next 15 mile. You'll forget how close to Pittsburgh you are. The trail is well maintained and you'll see volunteers out nearly every week. Give them a big thank you and send in a donation!

We couldn't find the part in the picture, and we're really disappointed. What we found was only a bike trail and we were expecting a creek to play in.

Another beautiful day on the trail. Interesting to see what a difference there is in the kinds of wildflowers blooming from one week to the next.

Lots of butterflies and many different wildflowers. I'm going to need to research to find out what kind of flowers they were!
