The Tredway Trail's full name is the Wynn and Clara Tredway River Trail, a 4.3-mile run on the eastern side of the Allegheny River just north of New Kensington. The trail is included in an initiative called the Erie-Pittsburgh Trail Alliance, which is focused on connecting trails between Pittsburgh and Lake Erie.
The Tredway Trail parallels the river along Boggs Way through a densely wooded corridor. Despite the thick vegetation, it's easier to catch a glimpse of the Allegheny River in this section of trail, which sits close to the bank. North of the marina, the trail begins to skirt of the River Forest golf course, providing views of its rolling fairways. The section ends under the Freeport Bridge where there is parking for about a dozen cars. From there, trail users looking to extend their journey have the option of traveling about 900 feet south on River Landing Drive to the entrance of the country club, where they can reach the protected bike lanes on the State Route 356. They can they ride the bridge into Freeport and connect to the southern end of the 21-mile Butler-Freeport Community Trail.
