About Us

The Pittsburgh Day of Giving is back and we need your support!

On May 3rd from 8:00 AM to midnight is the 2016 Pittsburgh Day of Giving. Yes, our section of the Great Allegheny Passage was completed a few years ago. However, we need your help to keep it in good shape for future generations. We need your help to improve and enhance the trail corridor as well as our on-road route between the GAP and the Montour Trail.

We cannot do it alone!

As a small non-profit organization made up of all volunteers, we depend on donations to keep operating and to fulfill our mission of long-term stewardship of the trail. Will you please consider supporting us, your local trail group, today? As a thank you, those who donate $25 or more during the Day of Giving will receive a one-year complementary membership within the Steel Valley Trail Council. Your donation on the web site on May 3rd will also receive a $1-per-$1 match donation from our matching pool until it is depleted.

Please visit and donate to the Steel Valley Trail Council.


About Us

Our Mission is to assure quality construction and long-term stewardship of the Steel Valley Trail: a community driven, environmentally sensitive bicycle and pedestrian trail, accessible to people of all ages and all abilities, providing vital linkage through the Monongahela Valley near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The planned trail network is 19 miles in length, connecting the communities of Clairton, Glassport, McKeesport, Duquesne, West Mifflin, Whitaker, Munhall, Homestead, West Homestead, Pittsburgh, Swissvale, and Rankin.

The Steel Valley Trail Council (SVTC) started as a committee of the Steel Industry Heritage Corporation (SIHC, now known as the Rivers of Steel Heritage Corporation).  In 1996 the SIHC commissioned a Trail Alignment Study that identified the potential alignment for the Steel Valley Trail from McKeesport to Pittsburgh with a connection to Clairton.  As the Steel Valley Trail grew in size and scope so did the organization, which formally incorporated in 2000.  We are a member of the Allegheny Trail Alliance and the Regional Trail Corporation.  We are a key partner in the development of the Great Allegheny Passage.  The SVTC is made up of Individual and Family members,  Corporate members and volunteers  who care about this region and who have a keen interest in riverfront trail development.
