We were there last weekend, rode from Jailtrail to Kennywood and back, with a stop to stock up at Costco note: However, unlike the Southside Works, the Waterfront did not benefit from proximity to, and unrestricted access to, a thriving urban commercial area. Is there an easy way to get from the Rankin Bridge to the trail? See a map I made at http: That would still leave almost 2 miles on Kennywood Blvd.
Seriously, anything that gets kids out of the house…. There used to be a passable route from the Whitaker metal sign just SE of the Rankin Bridge on PA down to the area that now has the trail. Is that still passable? Is there an easy way to get from the Rankin Bridge to the trail? Turn right at the first opportunity, which is the Marcegaglia driveway, and immediately right onto the trail. If it was me doing that I would just go on the trail to Grant Street at the Duquesne business park and backtrack.
Somehow seems a mite less crazy going that way. See a map I made at http: Be Advised This section of Kennywood Blvd is a Dangerous stretch where average traffic speeds are above 40 mph.
Nothing from the half dozen or so visits I made to Kennywood via bicycle last year is consistent with that statement.
We had season passes for and locked our bikes as close to the main entrance as we could each time we went. We also biked down after crossing the Rankin Bridge to get there.
The ride back from Kennywood has a bit of downhill false flat where we were able to easily top 20 mph, reducing the difference between our speed and the motorists around us. If more cyclists rode out there regularly, it would probably get a bit safer since drivers would expect us.
Or downtown to Kennywood. Look for miles It would be helpful to have someone more knowledgeable with the area along for support.

The complex is separated from the original sections of Homestead, West Homestead, and Munhall, via railroad tracks and does not physically or visually connect with the older sections of the municipalities, which was impossible due to the active rail lines.
To facilitate access, Allegheny County constructed a new access ramp to the site from the Homestead High Level Grays Bridge, and also partnered with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in on the construction of the East Flyover Ramp in Munhall Borough.
The construction of this ramp was well in advance of development plans which were announced in This resulted in a ramp which ultimately proved to be less than optimal.
