Your Hikes

» Rachel Carson Trail, Harrison Hills Park Climb above the Allegheny River and see its serpentine course from a bluff-top vantage on this seven-mile point-to-point. Then duck under maple trees for a quiet jaunt through leafy forests and open meadows. Miles from city center 25; Trip ID775335

» Baker Trail, Crooked Creek Lake Park Follow yellow blazes for a 10-mile section across creek-laced woodlands. The route crosses a covered footbridge and is interspersed with pastoral vistas along a flat farm road. Miles from city center 52; Trip ID775337
