The Tredway Trail's full name is the Wynn and Clara Tredway River Trail, a 9-mile multiuse rail-trail 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.
Wide and flat, this rail-trail has a crushed limestone surface and 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 trail passes under the Freeport Bridge where there is parking for about a dozen cars.
At this point along the route, trail users have the option of leaving the trail and 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.
Continuing to follow the river, the Tredway Trail winds northeast another 2 miles to Kiski Junction. Along the way, it passes where the Kiskimiskas River meets the Allegheny and the old Freeport Rail Bridge. Here, there is an additional 3 miles of trails that form different loops and options for all trail travelers.
Parking is available at the end of River Landing Drive, under the Freeport Bridge and at the Club House Drive Trailhead (740 River Forest Dr, Vandergrift).
