This trail is more like a walk through the woods than a hike...but what a walk it is. You are almost guaranteed to see deer, alot of deer! You may also come across horse back riders. I recomend this trail for families.

The trail is the exterior boundary of Gilfillan Farm, which was a private farm until the 70’s which raised sheep, cattle and crops. The upper meadows, as well as the perimeter trail, are open for walking to watch wildlife and take in some spectacular sunsets. Turkey, deer, skunks, cottontails, squirrel, raptors, etc. Lots of wildflowers as well. After a ramble, there are several coffee places within a mile.
BTW, they are serious about the No Dogs rule....Heidi.

Nice trail, easy uphill walk with convenient parking available.

We rode from the Heinz factory to the Penitentiary. Great ride.

Great dog friendly park! There's even a fenced in dog area behind the Observatory on top of the hill. There's also a beautiful clearing down at the bottom of the park with a stone pavilion. Quality city park best for quick trips.

Great trail! Went from Waterfront to McKeesport and back. Kudos to those who maintain this wonderful trail.

Easy and fun bike ride! Pass Kennywood rides!

Nice park. Trails are well kept. Lots of dogs enjoying the outdoors. The trails can get confusing though and what I thought was gong to be a couple miles of hiking ended up being 8 miles and thee hours.

love the trail. Make sure to download a map before the start of your hike. there's a lot interlinking trails which could be a bit confusing. I come here with my boxador and make a pit stop at the dog park.

Great time with our chocolate lab, Winston. Next time we will challenge ourselves a little more. One warning, bikers were a little aggressive on the narrower parts, not sure I'd wear earbuds and not be able to hear them.

I don’t know if it was the day or time of day we came but the trail was FULL of bugs! And it definitely was not an “easy” trail. There were a lot of hills, uneven terrain, and fallen trees to climb over. Some of the trails were very narrow and you could barely walk them. I will probably try a different trail at the park but this one was not good.

Lost my dogs tags on the blue trail...please keep an eye out for them!! The tag would have a rubber ducky and "Garth" on it. Thank you!!!

many trails are well marked. maps are also usually available in the mailbox by the log cabin. pressed dirt trails. nice for hiking, running, and biking.

First time to Frick Park. Enjoyed the hike, spent a fair amount of time making sure I was on the right Trail. I will go to Frick Park again.

Trails are short but have some steep areas. Some trails are rather narrow, but others are wide and paved with gravel. Good wildlife viewing; I saw ground hog, deer, Canada geese, and turtles, among the more common wildlife. Reserve consists entirely of reverting farmland, so do not expect mature woods. Overall, not bad considering the reserve's suburban setting.

very nice park. Terrain is a little rough in spots but still navigable.

fine 1.3 mile loop hike with three small kids. nice playground. cool to see the observatory.

Challenging, especially along Commercial street. Watch for cyclists.
