The Dead Man's Loop Trail at Dead Man's Hollow Conservation Area in McKeesport, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.7 mile out-and-back trail that connects the Table Top Rock Trail to the Ruins Trail at the park.

Despite the trail's name, this trail is an out-and-back hike. The park's trail map at the trailhead shows a tiny loop in the trail on the western end of the trail, but we did not follow the trail west from where we started tracking. If you do head west from this current trailhead, you need to cross Dead Man's Run creek and walk for about 0.1 mile to the loop at the western end of the trail.

Biking and dogs are both allowed on this trail.

This trail is extremely buggy during warmer months.

Parking: Parking can be tricky due to google maps misinterpreting the parking location, so the parking marker is located at the entrance to the Dead Man's Hollow parking lot. The entrance to the parking lot can be found at the junction of Scene Ridge Rd and River Ridge Rd. Please note: There are multiple parking areas for this trail - the one listed here is just one parking location. Please see the park map for all of the parking locations.

Hunting: Hunting is allowed at Dead Man's Hollow.

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!️
