The South Side is an official Trail Town. We meet the hikers and bikers from the Great Allegheny Passage on the downtown side of the Hot Metal Bridge. They explore the South Side historic business district through one of the many trail access points on the Three Rivers Heritage Trail.

Each year the Chamber and our ad sponsors create a two page ad with a detailed map and listing of South Side businesses for our trail visitors.

A special thank you to our 2018 TrailGuide ad sponsors - ASCEND Pittsburgh and Doublewide Grill.  The entire South Side business district benefits from their financial support for our Trail Town.
