Three Rivers Heritage Trail Extension
In 2011, the Community Trails Initiative was completed to analyze the feasibility of connecting 16 communities along the northern shore within the Allegheny Valley with trail. These communities include: City of Pittsburgh, Millvale Borough, Shaler Township, Etna Borough, Sharpsburg Borough, Aspinwall Borough, O’Hara Township, Blawnox Borough, Harmar Township, Cheswick Borough, Springdale Borough, Springdale Township, East Deer Township, Tarentum Borough, Brackenridge Borough and Harrison Township. The goal of this connection is to extend the Three Rivers Heritage Trail roughly 26 miles to connect to Freeport, PA. In this location the Three Rivers Heritage Trail will connect with the Treadway Trail and Armstrong Trail as a part of 270 miles trail corridor, known as the Erie to Pittsburgh Trail. This trail will also be will connect in Freeport with the Pittsburgh to Harrisburg Main Line Canal Greenway, the Butler Freeport Community Trail, the Rachel Carson Trail, and the Baker Trail.
