I love this trail! The best part is it goes for days (about 46 miles to be exact) and there are several different trail heads throughout Pittsburgh's suburbia. It used to be the Montour Railroad which was abandoned in 1967. Before that, the trail was a vital part of the coal mining industry. I assume the reason it’s nice and wide is because railroads require a certain amount of space. The fact that it's so flat makes it easy on my knees. The highway or city roads always leave me a little achey.
I get a little overzealous when it come to trees and forest so bear with me with all these photos… I'm a bit of a country bumpkin', what can I say?
I spy with my little eye a puppy!
This series is inspired by Clare Runs. Who is a real runner (me not so much) taking shots of the bay area. She is my running-spiration. Half marathon here we come!
