The Hazelwood Trail in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is an easy 1.9-mile one-way trail that runs along the Monongahela River. This section of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail goes through the Hazelwood Green brownfield development along the north bank of the Monongahela River and opened in 2019.

It can be accessed from the corner of Second Avenue and the Hot Metal Bridge (and from the Eliza Furnace Trail via a ramp at the opposite corner of the Hot Metal Bridge), from Tecumseh Street at Gloster Street, or by Blair Street and Second Avenue.

The northern section has a crushed-stone surface. The next section has 10 foot wide asphalt-paved trail and a sidewalk, and runs alongside a road, Blair Street.
