Great place to spend time if you are looking for peace and quiet. Very nicely maintained trail and user friendly. Good signage along the trail. Cell phone coverage is spotty in places.

Very scenic trail. What is missing is any porta potty on the trail or a garbage bin. Smooth ashphalt.

The Allegheny River Trail is one of the best trails I've biked. The view of the river is absolutely beautiful, and the paved trails are well maintained. The only thing lacking is a porta-potty or two.

This trail is so beautiful. I ran from my hotel down to this trail and it was really easy to get to. Loved the port a potties on the trail. Plus there were maps along the trail that helped.

This paved trail is fantastic for walking, running, or biking. It's almost entirely paved and only a slight grade. Great scenery along the Allegheny river
