Great Allegheny Passage Trail
For two decades, Friends of the Riverfront has been on the ground and in the water, working to protect and restore the Pittsburgh region’s priceless rivers and riverfronts. We are a pioneering organization that has been involved in creating nearly all of the trails you see as you bike, hike, rollerblade or paddle along our beautiful shores. Through intense collaboration with community partners, government officials, and diverse volunteer base, our rivers and riverfronts have been transformed from industrial wastelands to international examples of environmental renewal.
Our largest current project is completing the final segment on the 335 mile (539km) Great Allegheny Passage Trail that connects Pittsburgh to Washington D.C. An estimated completion date for this project is November 11, 2011. »»
On July, 31 we will hold the annual Pittsburgh Triathlon & Adventure Race. This event hosts over 1,000 international athletes each year, and has recently been ranked third best urban triathlon in the world. »»
