The Montour Trail is a multi-use non-motorized recreational rail-trail near Pittsburgh, that will ultimately extend 47 miles from Coraopolis to Clairton. Currently, multiple sections of the trail totaling over 40 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. In certain sections, horseback riding is also permitted, but not on the improved trail surface.
The Montour Trail Council (MTC) is a non-profit all-volunteer group which builds, operates, and maintains the trail.
The trail is open 24 hours a day; the MTC is open depending upon the availability of volunteers.
There are parking lots scattered throughout the trail.
