Getting There

Rail trail on the north shore of the Monongahela River. 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.

Steel Valley Trail Council info@steelvalleytrail.org

From US 376 take the Squirrel Hill Exit just to the east (downtown) side of the Squirrel Hill Tunnel. Follow Beechwood Bvd. to the top of the hill and then down Browns Hill Road on the other side. Before reaching the Homestead Bridge turn left at the light onto Old Browns Hill Rd. Ignore the signs that say "Road Closed" and continue down the hill to the seawall parking area.

Parallels the Homestead Waterfront bike trail. I want to love this trail sooo much, but it needs sooo much more TLC. Work has apparently begun on it to clean it up and fix it. The trail is beautiful, quiet, and secluded nonetheless. Fishing too!

This trail was nice for the kids and I. It is very open and the path is mostly alongside the streams. The kids were able to run and play without getting in anyone’s way. Lots of dogs, bike riders, runners, and hikers seem to use this trail. This is definitely a place to take the family.

When is this trail going to be fixed? We tried riding it today (Sept 29, 2019), and the big blowout from the water main break is still there. We were able to gingerly pull our bikes across it, but it was not easy. It is a short trail, very nice, but it would be good to know when it will be repaired.

Walk dogs here. Trail now closed about a half mile in due to water main break. Path is blocked and blow out so severe that it is not passable.

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.
