Many options, indeed! Today, I did Trillium-Fernwood-Funk-Forbes-Sumac-Scullcap-Black Cohosh-Trillium-Wake Robin-Round Top-Bloodroot-Trillium for a little over 4 miles. A little muddy in places, but nothing difficult. Highway noises are always there, but what else would you expect in Murrysville? My favorite spots are the ravines you cross on Black Cohosh and, of course, Round Top. Very well marked and well benched. A lot of nice people, too!

Great family day out kind of place. Multiple pavilions, 2 playgrounds, ample parking, great scenery, and paved paths.

Great trail with tons of options. Some steeper areas and muddy, but hey, it's PA. What do you expect?

Great short hike!

Beautiful, big woods feel

Travel could definitely need marked out a little bit better, other than that it’s fairly clear and very good for hiking or mountain biking or taking the dog, very quiet, very secluded, need to find me a partner to go hiking with

Very nice ride to Saltsburg. Lots of shade, trail was in very good shape. The last mile or so along the Loyalhanna into Saltsburg was great. Only downside was a fair number of stops at road crossings.

love this Trail and eating pizza in delmont at the top of the hill

if you want a really good workout, ride this Trail. better plan on a full day to do it from end to end

Hanks trail is 1.69 miles. Nice quick little loop.

Great place to explore and get a little nature in the city!

I'd give this a better rating because I use to love riding my mountain bike and horses here but some dipstick decided to make it off limits to anyone other than hikers. Now it's all overgrown.

This trail was a water-loving dog’s paradise. Both my dogs played and cooled off in the numerous stream crossings. Make sure you wear waterproof boots or shoes, and I recommend long pants and plenty of bug spray. It was muddy in several areas but was truly a relaxing, easy and beautiful hike and the trail was easy to follow. We got there at 9:00 on a Saturday and did not encounter another person the entire time. I definitely will be returning to this trail with my dogs.

My favorite place for morning cardio! The Bradament trail is my favorite quick cardio route.

Nice trail, a bit buggy, but a nice trail to walk.

Nice trail to bike on. Make sure you do on a weekend so you have enough time to enjoy it. A little hilly near Slickville, but all in all a nice trail.

Nice trail overall. Takes so time, but all in all a nice trail. Nice to ride to Downtown Saltsburg. People at the Fox's Pizza were really great!!!

You can’t even climb the tower

We love this trail and have hiked it repeatedly. It's a lovely stream walk through lush foliage. Part of the fun is that the trail crisscrosses Roaring Run repeatedly. Like 25 times. If there has been rain, it may be difficult to remain dry-shod on a couple of the crossings. Take poles or grab a walking stick so you can balance on rocks and logs to cross. Download a map of the Roaring Run Natural Area so you can see the various parking options. Also, you can easily make this a loop by linking up with other trails you will see on the map. The Roaring Run Trail itself is not steep, but it is muddy and rocky in places. If you connect with other trails for a loop, there are some steeper bits as you climb out of the valley where the stream is. Avoid the Painter's Rock Trail out of the valley unless you want some serious hill climbing on a narrow, rocky, rarely used trail. In summer, long pants and insect repellent are strongly advised, as on any woodland trail in PA. If you access the trail from County Line Road, smaller kids can do the first part of this hike, but they will get wet, because why not? When they get tired, turn around and go back. You have to walk in a ways to get to the stream. Maybe half a mile? But then it's a stream walk all the way up the trail until you intersect the Hillside Trail at the head of the valley. Big happy water-loving dogs will be in heaven.

This isn’t an official trail but a random collection of different trails in the park so nothing is marked but it’s not terribly difficult to follow. Tracked it at 5.5 miles in 2 hrs.

Heavily overgrown, inconsistently blazed, lots of downed trees, and (today at least) waterlogged and extremely buggy for much of the way. This hike was so miserable I elected to walk back along the road. I started at Walter Nature Reserve and pushed all the way through to Townsend Park. The most confounding spots were where the trail crosses private/residential land; Landowners (I assume) have put up signs admonishing hikers to "stay on the trail", but the blazes aren't visible due to absence or heavy overgrowth. The overgrowth and infrequent use means that in these ambiguous situations it's frequently not even apparent where the trail *might* be. I did lots of aimless wandering around. If you're going to do this one, wear gaiters and/or heavy pants to protect your legs from the prevalent thorns. FWIW, I didn't hear any shooting, but like the other reviewer, I went on a weekday morning, so probably not a peak time for the shooting ranges. I was eventually able to make it all the way through, but this trail needs a lot of work.

This area is a fantastic find. The Edge Hill Trail is a bit bigger than indicated if you follow the trail that tours the entire battlefield. Plus there are several trails across Forbes Road exploring where angry men wearing kilts with big rifles charged into equally angry natives with tomahawks and rifles of their own. If you have time, the tour of the museum and field is really good too. A little touch that I like is the small nature information plaques you'll find on the Iroquois trail. If you have a few hours on your hands then Bushy Run is a can't miss.

Great running trail. Open to bicycles as well.

Low traffic and slippery routes. A good cardio for the weekend.

Large park with many trails but they are meandering and fairly boring. Decent for mountain biking though
