With the decline of the steel-making in southwestern Pennsylvania, Rivers of Steel is restoring, protecting and enhancing the land and water resources of the region. By building trails along riverfronts and old railroad corridors and constructing river landings, the Heritage Area is capitalizing on the wealth of natural resources this region offers residents and visitors.
Trail guide maps are available at the following websites:
