Description

The Montour Trail is a multi-use non-motorized recreational rail-trail near Pittsburgh, PA that will ultimately extend 47 miles from Coraopolis to Clairton.

Currently, multiple sections of the trail totaling about 30 miles are completed. New sections are being added each year. The trail is paved with a smooth surface of crushed limestone, which makes it ideal for all forms of non-motorized use; bicycling, walking, running, cross-country skiing, and nature appreciation.

The trail travels through urban and suburban areas as well as picturesque undeveloped landscapes. The portion of the trail within Peters Township is called The Arrowhead Trail. It is owned and maintained by the Township and was designated a National Recreation Trail in 2003.
