Rail trail on the north shore of the Monongahela River (1 mile) This short paved trail parallels the north shore of the Monongahela River across from Homestead along a roadbed once used for shuttling coal between the rail line and barges. The parking area at the eastern end of the trail is a high seawall which was a major transfer point between the river and the huge slag piles up Nine Mile Run. The seawall is a popular fishing site. Plans are for the trail to continue east to the Carrie Furnace and across the Hot Metal Bridge. It will also connect up Nine Mile Run into Frick Park. To the west, the trail ends abruptly at a fence which bicycle commuters have thoughtfully and carefully cut so that they can continue across active rail to connect to Second Avenue, the Eliza Furnace Trail and points downtown. Do not follow their example as it is dangerous and illegal. Also, do not ride the trail with your mouth open as there are clouds of gnats. Blech.

Small trail with ample parking, fishing seems to be popular there, once it get connected to the Jail trail it will be awesome. I don't see that happening anytime soon though.
