The Blue Loop Trail at Boyce Park in Plum, Pennsylvania is an easy 1.6 mile hike through the southeast portion of the park. The trail is tucked away in the woods and thus you need to hike up the access road at the parking lot, hike beyond the utility shed, and onto the Blue & White Cap Trail. Follow the Blue & White Cap Trail for 0.2 miles until you reach the start of this trail.

Starting the loop from the end of the Blue & White Cap Trail, if you head north (left) on the loop, you'll hike through deciduous trees and brush on a well-maintained trail until reaching the northern section of the loop. In the north, the trail becomes more open and you get better views into the woods of Boyce Park - especially in the Fall.

As you hike along the eastern section of the trail, you'll be hiking along a small creek that you can use as a water source if you have a water filter. While hiking along the creek, you'll have to cross it at least twice to stay on the Blue Loop, but the creek crossings are not difficult.

Dogs and mountain biking are allowed on this trail.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
