This is a lovely place to walk by the Monongahala River. It covers several miles and is quite level. Always enjoy walking this trail.

We started at the Waterfront Hotel and walked to Star City. Well cleared, wide black top path. Most of the trail is scenic, minus the power plant. Stop at Table 9 for great view, fantastic food and drinks.
