We biked several portions of the trail and had a good time. We biked from the PNC Park died of the river over the bridge to the bike trail to maneuver through the city. It was a little rough in spots but overall In good condition.

It seems like every time we are in Pittsburgh, we end up going for a walk on the trail for some reason. If you stay in the Point Park/North Shore area, it's the easiest way to get around to the stadiums and restaurants. It's paved and flat. The only thing you have to watch out for are the bicycles who... More

The trail is closed east of the convention center on the south side of the Allegheny. Wonderful views of the north and south sides. There is a pretty reflection pond as you walk under the convention center towards 10th St and the Cultural District. The walk on the north side passes by among other things PNC, Heinz Field, Mr Rogers... More

As a native Pittsburgher, this is one of our family's favorite things to do. We always start the trail from Washington's landing (Herr's Island) and ride towards the Point. Parking on the island is free and usually available. The trail is on the north side of the river (across from the city). The ride is about 2.5 miles long and... More

Poor information on where to access this trail. Address listed here only brings you to the start of Allegheny River Blvd. Could not enjoy the trail.

This trail seems to be still in the making and from what I can see it's just a bike path and not very established

Walked from the Strip District to the Point, under no fewer than 5 bridges along the Allegheny River. About 10 years ago I kayaked on the Allegheny in this area and found it to be an interesting and different perspective of Pittsburgh, this trail gives that perspective without having to get in the water. In so many spots you can... More

In town for Reds/Pirates series, and had a nice quiet early morning walk here each morning. River is beautiful!

Took this trail on our way back from Point State Park. It is a very pleasant walk and there are staircases along the way to get up to street level. Nice walk along the river and not on the upper level with the streets, cars, and buildings. Great view across the river.

Great trails system along the waterfront ... Walk or rent a bike and go explore! Much to see and do along the way depending on the section you choose to explore. Also many great spots to grab a seat at a bench and enjoy the sunshine and scenery around you :)
