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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
