Great new trail section @ model plane airport. Airport south, east, and west trail heads all right there. All three trails cover about 9 miles or so and and back. There is also Haul trail that I haven't had a chance to run or bike on

I take my dogs to Hillman frequently during the winter and early spring months and walk them all over the area. I avoid Hillman during the summer because the ticks are terrible. Please, make sure your pups have their flea/tick treatments and as an added precaution spray them with some lemon eucalyptus oil before letting them loose in the high grass there. A beautiful place but just polluted with ticks.

Same as the previous post. It's the Switchback Trail from the Haul Rd parking area which is a nice hike over a pine needle layered tail. It's blazed red but so are the trails that cross it. It would be nice if they color coded the trails. To do the loop that is mapped in this app you will probably need to change trails about 2.5 miles in, possibly over to the Gelding Trail. We stayed on the Switchback and it double banged on itself and was about 4.5 miles.

Ryan's review below was very accurate; trail had very clear blazes, but you would hit a junction and the same red blaze would be down every path. We 'tried' to do this 7 mile loop but ended up getting frustrated about 4 miles in and spent another 2 just trying to get back to the car. The trail often intersected with Gelding's Trail which is not on All Trails at all. Other noteworthy comments would be that the trail was more on the easy versus moderate side, was very shaded the entire time, but didn't really have any noteworthy 'stop and enjoy' moments.

There is no trail marked "Bavington Trail" in Hillman State Park as far as I can tell. As another person commented, there are good signs for various trails intersecting the roads through the Park. Hit up the Switchback trail which I believed to be part of the Bavington. This trail goes a little less than 3 miles before hitting Abby's trail. Did Abby's for a mile or two but didnt complete the loop since I wasn't sure where the Abby trail ends up or if it was even part of the Bavington loop. There were no trail maps available in the park to indicate where these trails end up and all the trails in the park are blazed red which makes things confusing. Trail itself was actually really nice pine forest. Very small elevation changes.

Hiked. The trail is marked as Switchback Trail not Bavington. The trail is marked red but intersects with other trails which are also marked red. Other than this, the trails were well maintained and great for horses and trail bikes. We had a great time.

I enjoyed this with the dog. The paths were mostly dry and covered with pine needles. Very quiet.

Great trail primarily through pine forest - one of my favorites!

Great hike and bike trails

4 great routes that are for any skill level. Well marked, easy parking, and not crowded. Best mountain biking I've found within an hour of Pittsburgh.

Some of the best riding anywhere. Bavington doesn't need to kill you aerobically (you can always push yourself harder), as most climbs are short. Pine-needle carpeting and smart trailbuilding make this place shed water unbelievably well: even a day or two after a downpour, a few puddles are all that are left. Figure-8 trail off Knowlton Road is short but amazing; and the loop leading directly away from the Haul Road parking lot is generally kept up well, and it's a blast to ride. Definitely recommended in the Greater Pittsburgh Area for new riders as technical and aerobic sections are small and sporadic.
