The North Park Freeride Area continues to evolve. Last year we started a new middle section for the Dr J Trail and a new Expert Jump Line for the Skills Park. When compete the North Park Freeride Area will rock!! The middle section will include a bridge with a moto booter style step up jump, dirt jumps, an elevated wooden berm with a drop at the end and several banked turns.
The Nine Mile Run Watershed Association is working with the City of Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, and the Pittsburgh Trails Advocacy Group to protect sensitive habitats along the banks of Nine Mile Run in an area just upstream from Commercial Street. 276 Trail users who wish to cross Nine Mile Run can do so on stable rocks at the green park bench or about 25 feet upstream. These two crossing points are sustainable.
