Help Wanted: Finance

Montour Trail Council needs volunteers interested in exploring leadership positions with our Finance Committee. Volunteers will have opportunities to assist with management of MTC finances, preparation of monthly and annual financial reports, and assisting with the annual audit and other financial oversight and reporting. A background in finance or accounting is essential, although a CPA is not. The time commitment varies with season and averages about 6 hours per month. This is a great opportunity to join a group of dedicated volunteers who enjoy and support the Montour Trail. Send a message of interest to mtcoffice@montourtrail.org and we will arrange a phone call to follow up.

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.

Best in the ‘Burgh, Again

For the fifth consecutive year, the Montour Trail has been selected by the readers of Pittsburgh magazine as the top hiking/biking trail in its Best of the ‘Burgh. More than 200,000 votes were cast in the annual poll, which rounds up locals’ favorite choices in leisure, shopping, dining, and more.  The Best of the ‘Burgh is the cover story of the magazine’s July 2023 issue, which has just been released.
