From Pittsburgh, follow PA 837 west to PA 60, until where PA 60 intersects PA 50 (as Crafton Boulevard and Noblestown Road). At the southwestern corner of the intersection is the nothern end of the trail.
To reach the southern end, continue on PA 60/Crafton Boulevard until reaching McMunn Avenue on your right. There you will see Clearview Extension on your left, merging into Crafton Boulevard. Between Crafton and Clearview Extension is a landscaped area; go up to the landscaped area towards the wooded section, and you will reach the northern head of the trail.
It's not the best or nicest trail I've been on but it serves it's purpose. Clearview Ave on one side and Crafton Blvd on the other.
Normally trails from rails are great for our disabled son, who walks with some difficulty. Not this one. It was eroded and rutted, making for a very uneven and difficult walk. There is abundant poison ivy on at least one side of the trail for much of its length. And everywhere the trail is overgrown with invasive plant species, honeysuckle and bush honeysuckle, English ivy, Japanese knotweed, etc. The electric company had massacred the trees along the side where the electric lines run. All in all, it was a mess, narrow, pitted, and not pretty. Honestly, the walk down from the top of the trail along the adjacent street was far more enjoyable. We'll never go back to this trail again.
