The Tredway Trail in Allegheny Township, Pennsylvania is an easy 4.4 mile out-and-back trail that leads from the end of Boggs Way and runs along the Allegheny River until the trail reaches River Forest Drive and McCane Hollow Rd.

The trail is flat, wide, well-maintained, and lightly-trafficked with a few different view points of the Allegheny River and the surrounding hills on its banks. Further down the trail, around mile 1.9, you can find a nice view of the river with a bench along the trail - the hills across the river are actually Harrison Hills Park, where the Scout's Trail runs along the edge.

Around mile 1.3 you'll find a creek that runs down a rocky ravine, passing under the trail, and out to the Allegheny River. You can walk down a tiny trail to a pool where water fills up before it runs through a pipe under the trail. There are some small, 2 to 3-foot waterfalls along the creek in the ravine. A pair of benches can be found here as well.

At mile 2.2 you'll reach an intersection with McCane Hollow Rd where the Tredway Trail ends; however, there is a trail that continues north along the Allegheny River for many miles, which is part of an extension plan project to extend the Tredway Trail an additional 1.5 miles to the Freeport Bridge.

Parking: Directions to parking can be a bit confusing as Google has not mapped the entirety of Boggs Way in Allegheny Township. Follow Google's directions along Bogg Way until it says you've arrived - continue driving down the dirt road until you reach the parking lot for the trailhead at the end of the road.

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!️
