The Blue Loop Trail in Deer Lakes Park, Tarentum, PA, is an easy 2 mile hike through the woods.

Nothing special about this trail, but it's quiet and you often don't see other hikers. The occasional mountain biker will pass through, but even that's rare.

Excellent place to walk or hike a leash-reactive dog or just get away from the city and people.

Today we completed about 90% of this trail in one go. Perfect weather and trail conditions. Many beautiful sights for photos. Interesting valley to explore below Red Trail down to the road. Up the hill from where Blue Trail crosses Crayfish Drive is an awesome pine grove. We found a stream (mostly dry now) that should be beautiful in the Spring. Rather an easy hike for those in our 60's.

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!️
