Jason B. on Devou Park Trail
We had a great time on this hike. Just watch out for bikers! We started the loop from the entrance by the creepy abandoned building and just stayed to the left to complete the whole 4.6. Great views on the backside facing the city during fall.
The trail consists of a series of eight trails that create a few different loops. The only real difficulty to the trail is weather conditions, especially mud after raining. More than 50% of the trail gets overly muddy with little to no rock or gravel to help find a foothold. Combine that with small but steep inclines and washed out switchbacks the trail seems more appropriate for mountain bikers than hikers when it has been raining.
