Washington, Pennsylvania Map

I go here often. The loop is exactly two miles. This GPS on here isn’t quite right. Nice trail, well maintained. Easy.

This is a great trail that's well maintained. There are lots of birds in the spring and an area that's fantastic for hanging a hammock. playgrounds nearby make it a great starter trail for kids.

Other scenic drives are pretty amazing from beginning to end. Over 90 miles this had about 4 cool spots to stop and check out and multiple views of rolling hills. The vast majority of this drive was either through neighborhood/cities or shrouded by tree line. The main highlight of this drive is the view at the summit, approximately halfway along the route. The hotel at the top had a huge deck and restaurant and it was a spectacular place for a sunset. It is also a few meters from the only pullout (Southbound) along the entire road.

This is not a "hiking trail" it is a heavily travelled two-lane black top hi-way. Why is it even listed?

I thoroughly enjoyed exploring the southwestern Pennsylvania countryside on a picturesque fall day three years ago. There are many wonderful points of interest along (or just off) the National Pike. The spectacular Nemacolin Woodlands Resort and the Fort Necessity National Battlefield are just two miles a part in Farmington. And in between these two stops, take route 381 a short distance north to scenic Ohiopyle State Park...and just further to Frank Lloyd Wright's world-famous Fallingwater house (which was the highlight of the entire trip for me).

A beautiful ride on a beautiful day. I needed to get to my destination or I could have spent a couple days on this road.

It is a beautiful drive whether you are into the history or not. And the parks are nice too. I spent a little time at Fort Necessity. I have been through here before but usually at night and never took the time to enjoy it before. Next time through I will allow even more.
