McKeesport to Pittsburgh
Highlights of this section include spectacular bridges, old steel mills, including the famous Homestead Works, and a dramatic walk along the Monongahela River. The trail will end at Point State Park where the three rivers meet (Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio). This was to be the terminus of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal, and the reason the canal is the C&O rather than the Chesapeake to Cumberland. The trail is planned for completion by 11/11/11, but you can make a detour using mostly sidewalks. See the Great Allegheny Passage Web site for the status of the trail.
