McKeesport Trailhead in McKeesport

There are two errors on the trail route. The trail crosses the RR tracks at Locust Street and goes behind the parking garage, police station and two city parks and crosses River Street to pass the McKeesport Marina. The trail forks just before the 15th Street bridge; the left fork takes the GAP across the 15th Street bridge to a separate trail leading to River Road. River Road is share the road to the old Durabond pipe yard, where it goes up to the right to the GAP trail to Boston.

Looking at the closeup view of the trail, there are more errors. The trail crosses Water Street, not River Street and follows a dedicated asphalt trail next to Water Street to go behind Kane Hospital. Then, it shares Market Street and 13th Street to join an asphalt trail parallel to Walnut Street to the fork leading to the 15th Street bridge.
