The Eliza Furnace Trail, part of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is an easy 6 mile out-and-back hike that leads from the southwest corner of Schenley Park to Point State Park and the Downtown section of the TRHT and back. The trail is flat and paved the entire way. This section of the TRHT is less popular than the North Shore Riverfront Trail or the Station Square Trail since there aren't as many views. The trail runs along the Monongahela River with views of South Side, the Hot Metal Bridge, Liberty Bridge, the Smithfield Street Bridge, and Mount Washington.

One downside to this trail is that it runs along I-376, so it's noisy throughout almost the entire hike. When you reach the Smithfield Street Bridge, the trail becomes harder to find as it follows sidewalks, but you can follow the green bike signs with arrows to 'Point State Park' to stay on the trail.

Parking: Parking can be found at the parking lot by the coordinates provided. Turn off of Second Ave and onto the dead end road - you'll see signs for trailhead parking. Parking is free and has a 3-hour limit from 8AM to 6PM, except on Sundays.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
