Washington's Landing Trail Description

Washington's Landing, a 42-acre island in the Allegheny River, is now home to a thriving mixed-use community after a successful brownfield reclamation. The Washington's Landing Trail forms almost a complete loop around island, which was once known as Herr's Island.

In addition to offering picturesque views of the river and downtown Pittsburgh, the crushed-stone pathway provides access to the island's North Park, Washington's Landing Marina and several businesses. On the southern tip of the island, you can cross the river on a pedestrian bridge to reach the Three Rivers Heritage Trail, a popular route along the city's waterfront.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available off Waterfront Drive (under the 31st Street bridge) in the center of Washington's Landing island.
