The Great Allegheny Passage

With three local trail systems converging in the City of McKeesport, we are proud to be a featured Trail Town along the Great Allegheny Passage.

Now complete to Pittsburgh, the 150-mile Great Allegheny Passage connects with the 184.5-mile C&0 Canal Towpath at Cumberland, MD to create a 334.5-mile route between Pittsburgh and Washington, DC, free from traffic and motorized vehicles.

McKeesport is at the junction of the Youghiogheny River and the Monongahela, which the Great Allegheny Passage follows to Pittsburgh. In the 1800s McKeesport was home to the National Tube Works, spurring the economic boom along with the rest of the Pittsburgh region. A popular spot in the city is the McKees Point Marina. McKeesport is also a connection to the Clairton Connector of the Montour Trail.
