Pennsylvania - Three Rivers Heritage Trail
The Three Rivers Heritage Trail is a multi-use riverfront trail system in the Pittsburgh region. This 24-mile nonlinear trail has segments on both banks of Pittsburgh’s three rivers with access to city neighborhoods, business districts, and local attractions. The trail promotes a healthy lifestyle, is popular for recreation, and provides a safe route for commuters.

The Three Rivers Heritage Trail highlights Pittsburgh’s history through the use of Interpretive Signage. Along the trail, signs call attention to significant places, historical events, and native wildlife. The trail also serves as the Pittsburgh hub for other trail system connections such as the Great Allegheny Passage, the Erie-to-Pittsburgh Trail, the Pittsburgh-to-Harrisburg Main Line Canal Greenway, and future connection to the Montour Trail.
