The Green Loop Trail at Deer Lakes Park in Tarentum, Pennsylvania is a secluded and easy 1.2 mile hike through the northern section of Deer Lakes Park and passes through a wildflower meadow. To get on this trail, it's recommended you start your hike on the Green White Blaze Trail since it's a straight-shot spur trail that leads right to this trail; however, you can also get on this trail from the Blue Loop Trail in various sections on the eastern side of this loop.

You'll find the wildflower meadow in the middle of the trail on the southern side of this loop about half way between the eastern and western ends. In the summer, parts of the trail can be overgrown where the meadow meets the trail, so you may need to bushwhack your way through the tall grass to reach the meadow. In colder months, that isn't an issue. If you're headed east to west along the southern portion of the trail, as you pass through the meadow area, look to the southwest corner to pick back up on the trail.

Connecting trails: You can hop on the Blue Loop Trail on the eastern side, the White & Green Blaze Trail can be used to start and end this loop, and you can also hop on the Green Spur Trail from the western and eastern sides of this loop too.

This is a quiet trail and is lightly trafficked, but dogs and biking are both allowed here. This is one of the best trails at Deer Lakes Park considering the spacious wildflower meadow.

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 / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
