Click to enlarge.

You can take the Pittsburgh light rail system (commonly called “T” for “transit”) from downtown (or any station in the South Hills) to the end of the blue line and get on the Montour Trail; the closest access is 0.7 mile east off Brownsville Road, a bit inconvenient for walkers but okay for cyclists. The Port Authority allows two bikes per light rail vehicle. While onboard, stow your bike in designated wheelchair spaces, and hold onto it securely while on the T; keep it clear of aisles, doorways, and other passengers. You must walk your bicycles at all times when accessing PRT T-stations.

MM A-6.3 40.496233, -80.261917  •  Elevation 1,132

The Airport Connector is a combination trail/on-road link that runs about 6 relatively flat miles, from Enlow (MP 7.8) to the airport parking lot, making Pittsburgh more accessible to bicycle tourists. The connector is well-signed and travels through residential neighborhoods along Enlow Road, Clinton-Enlow Road, McCaslin Road, Clinton Road, airport service roads, and a designated trail. Caution: For much of the route, you share the roadway with car/truck traffic. There are few (if any) amenities along the route. The trailhead terminus abuts the landside terminal’s moving walkway in the extended-term parking lot. Inside the airport, baggage claim hosts an area where bicyclists can disassemble/reassemble their bikes pre-/post-flight.

The closest access areas are McLaren Road (Enlow), which is 0.2 mile to the east of the junction; Findlay Township Activity Center (Imperial), 0.6 mile to the west; and the Pittsburgh International Airport at the northern terminus.

WESTLAND BRANCH

MM 21.6/W-0.0 (no markers) 40.321033, -80.239567

MM W-4.1 (no markers) 40.279567, -80.270367

The Westland Branch connects to the Montour Trail mainline at Gilmore Junction and runs 4.1 miles through predominantly rural farmlands to Venice. Because an active rail line parallels the Trail,  it is not overgrown — offering great views of the surrounding countryside: hawks gliding overhead, cattle grazing in rolling pastures, wild flowers and interesting bushes blowing at the trail’s edge. If train watching is your thing, you might be able to see (up close) one of the MarkWest tank trains, which creep quietly by at a few miles per hour.

Westland Trailhead, Hornhead Road   

MM W-4.1 (no markers)  40.279567, -80.270367  •  Elevation 1,076

Bethel Park Branch runs from MM B-0 just past Brush Run Road to MM B-2.8 at Logan Road, through heavily forested and residential neighborhoods. The trees, wildflowers and vegetation that line both sides of the Trail are home to a variety of animals, including deer that frequently jump onto the path. There are a number of amenities (portable toilets, water fountains, and benches) along the route. It is a high-usage section, so we recommend courtesy as you share the Trail.
