The Lawrenceville section of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail is a short 1 mile out-and-back hike that starts at the end of 40th street.

The trail starts under the 40th street bridge and heads north to 43rd street before you turn back and head south. The southern section of the trail ends at the train tracks, but this GPS map brings you about 150 feet beyond the end of the trail to a small ledge and lookout point that overlooks the Allegheny River.

There's a dog park on the southern section of this trail as well. There are two areas - one for large/mixed sized dogs and one area for small dogs only.

Biking is allowed, but this trail does not connect to the Strip District or Downtown portions of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail, yet.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
