I am wondering a good way to get to Millvale, does the Northside trail go all the way there? I know it goes to Washington’s Landing (below the 31st bridge). I went Spring Garden Ave last Saturday, that seems rather hilly and excessivley out of the way. I am trying to avoid Route 28. Any suggestions. Also if there is a trail there, can you explain to me how to get there, I have rode around that area but not found trail access.
It goes all the way to Millvale park under the 40th st bridge. The trail is a little rough from the 31st st bridge to the 40th, but it is passable. They are starting to work on the new elevated trail through there too.
My preferred path, although not quite the shortest, from southside, take the trail to smithfield, come across smithfield then left onto ft pitt blvd, right onto commonwealth, left into pt state park, trail over ft duquesne bridge, down to the trail and all the way to millvale.
Coming back the other way, take blvd of the allies instead of ft pitt.
The Northside trail goes almost the whole way there. You just have to go across the train tracks and under 28. I’m not sure what its like now with all the constuction going on. It may not be passable yet?
