"The Eliza Furnace Trail is a segment of the almost complete 37-mile Three Rivers Heritage Trail, which is conveniently located and used by commuters, walkers, bikers, joggers, and skaters of all ages. This is a popular trail that offers a unique view of various city bridges, landmarks, and views of downtown. This Eliza Furnace Trail begins at the parking lot on Swineburne Street, following the former alignment of the once heavily traveled Baltimore and Ohio rail line. Its eastern end connects to the Panther Hollow Trail (which leads to Schenley Park), and its western end will eventually connect to Point State Park." Read more

Locals calls this the "Jail Trail" cause you can see county jail along the way. This isn't a very exciting hiking spot as it's basically a paved road for walking and biking. But considering it's in such an urban location, it's a really nice spot to get outside and get some exercise. There are some nice views of the Monongahela River and the city. There's always a lot of people on the trail so it feels pretty safe too.
