Trail Construction

With the recent storm damage, please exercise caution as you use the trail. Our volunteers are working their way across the 50+ trail miles to find and repair the damage.

In general, Montour Trail’s all-volunteer maintenance team is often rehabbing and improving the trail. If you see a crew at work, (dismount your bike) walk carefully around them and the equipment. In some cases, volunteers may advise you to wait a few minutes. Thank you for your patience.

Montour Trail has received a four-Star rating from Charity Navigator, the nation’s most trusted charity evaluator.

If you live near Pittsburgh, one of the nation’s outstanding rail-trails is 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 in 2023 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.
