The planned route of the Erie to Pittsburgh Trail begins in Erie on the Bayfront at Dobbin’s Landing, it follows roads through Erie western New York and works its way south to Oil Creek. It follows Oil Creek to the Allegheny River, then continues along the Allegheny River in downtown Pittsburgh at Point State Park at the Point, where it meets the Great Allegheny Passage. Trail development has often been challenging, but there is steady progress toward reducing or eliminating the remaining gaps.
