Such an interesting trail, with bridges, steps, and different paths. It is in a pretty neighborhood, too! Muddy, so bring sneakers, but didn’t get any cuts and bruises as the other traveler, so can’t speak to that. Was in August.

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

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.

love this park... period.

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

Urban riverside bike rides are always nice and I feel like they're usually shorter than this one. It can be extended across the river to the Point State Park side. There is also free parking for the River trail along the Allegheny Valley Expressway along the more northern part of the bike trail. Great city vews.

Very nice scenery some trails aren’t maintained lots of water views.... definitely listen to the chick above like theirs so many gnats KEEP UR MOUTH SHUT!!!!! There’s no open way to get down to the creek.... I’ll come back in the fall

Modified the loop here a little on our way down when we saw some switch backs and thought "eh why not." Kind of treacherous with little ones. The footing is all shale and can be quite slippy but if you take your time, you'll be fine. Went when the leaves were bare and aside from the lower part of the trail it wasn't the most exciting hike, but nice for being right in the middle of the city.

A nice trail in an urban park. Some parts are surprisingly secluded from the city. However, the trail is very confusing and could use more signs for navigation.

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.

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.

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.

Great place to run or ride your bike around the loop. There are great trails off of the loop as well!
