Riverside Trail

1.2 Miles

Dogs (leashed)

The Riverside Trail at Barking Slopes Conservation Area near New Kensington, PA is a short 1.2 mile out-and-back hike along the the Barking Slopes' ledges and forest that runs adjacent to the Allegheny River.

This trail is unique in that it runs along large ledges and weaves through section of tall bamboo plants. The trailhead can be found at the entrance to the parking lot right where Barking rd meets the hairpin turn that leads to a dead end. The trail meets up again with Barking Rd about 0.6 to 0.7 miles down. We almost made it to the end of the trail before turning back since there wasn't much else to see.

Follow the blue blaze/arrow signs on the trees.
