Actual trail mapped here closed at trailhead today. Other trails in area still open so plenty to hike! Very crowded on weekends.

FYI directions via app ended in a residential area in front of a driveway opposite the park, had to drive around to the act park entrance. Had difficulty staying on trail so ended up all over the park, but still a nice area for hiking!

This trail was pretty easy in my eyes. We had 4 kids from ages 6-12 and we all enjoyed it. The water at the end was everyone’s favorite. We had a picnic and threw rocks. Not too many people around either.

This is a great hike in Sewickley Heights Borough Park! Basically downhill all the way to the stream and then back uphill. The recent snow added a little extra to the scenery. With the connector trail to get to the actual trail, it is about 2 miles round trip.

This is my second or third time doing this. I would recommend it for just about anyone with experience or even without. It'll definitely break a sweat for even the most experienced hikers. Mosquitoes are a little bad but that's to be expected in Pennsylvania.

Great trail for the start of fall. Black cherry to butterfly trail was calm and flat, trail well maintained. Connecting it to Gas Well Path and continuing as a loop (not a there and back) on Towhee trail gives a nice change of pace and increases the intensity slightly. Towhee trail is less well marked however, particularly by Little Sewickley Creek. Many pups running about as well.

Gas Well Path is a beautiful and difficult hike. The ascent is challenging and beautiful. There are several paths at this park that you can choose to continue your hike. Would highly recommend.
