Trail Alerts

Trailhead Parking Restriction

At ~MM 24.7, the McConnell Road trailhead holds fewer parking spaces than usual through winter. There are two nearby trailheads that we recommend: Kurnick (~MM 25.5) and Venice (~MM 22).

Trail Winterization

Volunteers are turning off water fountains for winter. In addition, there is no snow/ice removal, since this can damage the limestone. Plan your visit accordingly.

Hot Off the Press!

The summer 2024 brochure is available now at trailheads all along the Montour Trail. This year, we celebrate 35 years of hiking, biking, camping and outdoor recreation.

Walk + Run + Bike + Camp

If you live near Pittsburgh, one of the the nation’s outstanding rail-trails is right in your back yard!

The Montour Trail is a multi-use, non-motorized recreational pathway around Pittsburgh, the country’s longest suburban rail-trail. It is privately owned and operated. The main line extends ~47 miles; branch routes increase length to 60+ miles. The relatively flat half-loop stretches from Coraopolis (along the Ohio River) to Clairton (on the Monongahela River). A northwest branch connects directly to Pittsburgh International Airport.

The Montour connects to other rails-to-trails in western Pennsylvania and beyond: the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) and the C&O Canal Towpath, a completed trail system that stretches 300+ miles from Pittsburgh to Washington, DC.; the Panhandle Trail — a converted railroad line that stretches from Weirton, West Virginia, to Carnegie. And this local resource is part of U.S. Bicycle Route 50, which runs east-west and, when completed, will span the country.

Currently, 46 miles of the Montour Trail are continuous with several short gaps in the southeast section.

The Trail is easy to get to by car, as there are access areas and trailheads every few miles along the route. Pittsburgh’s rapid transit system runs near some of these, and it is bike friendly. The Trail is ADA accessible as well.

Some of the original Montour Trail Council founders met up for a mid-autumn bike ride. L to R: Dino Angelici (first MTC VP), Tim Killmeyer, Paul McKeown, Stan Sattinger (first MTC president), Dave Wright.
