The Woodland Trail at Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve, Pittsburgh, PA, is a moderate 1.3 mile out-and-back hike that runs along the northern section of the park.

The trail is 0.6 miles one-way and you can hike back on it or hike down the Spring Hollow trail to get back; however, it'll be anywhere from 1 - 1.3 miles total.

Near the western section of the trail is a short vista trail that leads to the power-lines that run through the park. Not the best views, but it's a nice change from the trail.

There's also a small waterfall at the intersection of the Spring Hollow trail on the north eastern portion of this trail.

No dogs or biking.

This trail is a bit challenging especially on a hot muggy summer day. Trail is more rugged narrow and steeper but nice photo ops of the fallen trees.
