The GAP Welcomes its Newest Section: the Pipeline Coaster! 

Tuesday, June 21, 2011 2:24:15 PM

Three more miles of the Great Allegheny Passage were unveiled on Friday, June 17. This new section of trail, rightfully called the Pipeline Coaster, weaves through the Steel Valley, around Kennywood Park, and over two bridges that cross Norfolk Southern Railway and Union Railroad Co. tracks. 

If you missed the event, there is still plenty of time to get out and enjoy the Pipeline Coaster this summer. In the meantime, take a look at these photos from the ride:
