We start our walk at different locations and always find something nifty along the way, from a waterfall to a fish pond to a scary tunnel. Beautiful and well maintained trail. We feel lucky to live near the Montour Trail.

I have been going on this trail in the south hills since it opened about 18 years ago. It is so beautiful. Depending on where you are you can see horse, so many trees, lots of beautiful woods, deer, bridges, tunnels, icecream shops, etc. I couldn't live without this trail!!

My dog and I set off on a brisk afternoon searching for Enlow tunnel and National tunnel. Enlow is a straight shot and 575 feet long. National tunnel has a curve in it and at 600ft long it really is the best. Both ends have been sealed off keeping the huge icicles that used to form in the tunnel to... More

Thanks to all the volunteers who make the path a pleasure to be on. It's strange how friendly people can be walking and then back in the parking lot, routine takes over and they slam the door into each other's cars.

An interesting section of the trail with several bridges. The trail traffic isn't too bad through the week. Stop and get a gyro at the Simple Greek if you want to earn back some calories. Definitely downhill from Bethel Park to Peters Township.

I live near the Montour Trail section in Bethel Park and Peters Township and I must admit only recently did I discover this hidden gem. I use it several times a week and never tire of its serene and remote beauty. It has a well maintained limestone surface and the weeds are routinely trimmed. My only complaint is that access...

This is a nice long trail through beautiful countryside. It doesn't have the scenic river views of the Great Allegheny Passage, but it is still very pleasant from end to end. There are three tunnels along the way. There are multiple parking spots and toilet facilities (flushing portables). Trail surface was in excellent condition as of October 2016, although there...

I have enjoyed this trail for safe no traffic bike riding through the woods and through old railroad tunnels. The trail extends hundreds of miles in W PA. I have been rideing here for decades.
