Construction Notice
Cliff Mine Road trailhead (trail mile 5.9) safety improvements are starting. The parking lot will be closed beginning April 18. A temporary trail will be available through the area, but you can't park there.
The Trail

The Montour Trail is a multi-use non-motorized recreational rail-trail near Pittsburgh, PA that will ultimately extend 46 miles from Moon Township near Coraopolis to Clairton. Currently, multiple sections of the trail totaling over 40 miles are completed. New sections are being added each year.

The trail is paved with a smooth surface of crushed limestone, which makes it ideal for all forms of non-motorized use: bicycling, walking, running, cross-country skiing, and nature appreciation. In certain sections, horseback riding is also permitted, but not on the improved trail surface.

A portion of the trail within Peters Township is called The Arrowhead Trail. It is owned and maintained by the Township.

The Panhandle Trail stretches 29 miles between Carnegie, PA, and Weirton, WV. The portion of the trail in Allegheny County is managed by the Montour Trail Council.

The Organization

The Montour Trail Council (MTC) is a non-profit all-volunteer group which builds, operates, and maintains the trail. It is a registered 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation, relying on corporate, foundation and government grants and private donations for funding.

Get T-shirst, sweatshirts, and hoodies Hats, mugs, gifts Get Montour Trail logowear from the Trail Store.

There are over 1040 members at this time. All work of the MTC is done by volunteers, including maintenance and light construction. The Board of Directors heads the organization.
